TAD: Busted Circuits and Ringing Ears (Adam Pease, Ryan Short, 2008). The Seattle rock band known as TAD richly deserves a rockumentary of its own, and by god, here it is. The band and its big-boned frontman were part of that which is called grunge; I saw them play in Seattle in 1990, or possibly ’91, and can verify the effectiveness of the act. I watched this because I’m doing some work for the ReelNW program on Seattle’s PBS station, KCTS. Their blog is here, and my interview with the directors of TAD should be up next week.

At What a Feeling!, a week of Eighties sequels continues with Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold, a dead experience if ever there was one.
