   This Chatham based band just gets signed to Fringe Records (Toronto), Walt leaves his drumming position, Terry Hart takes over, & the new CD hits stores.
    The band toured the underground scene & quickly became as talked about as the legends of Punk/Thrash/ Metal they were opening for.
    The CD itself is great & is still as relevant today. The Mad were always known for writing music that had a purpose or message. The Mad were getting airplay across the country on college radio & began playing shows in the U.S.A. for the first time ever.

    This is one band I looked up to. I was lucky enough to be called in to do some shows with them on bass. I was a big fan & already knew how to play their songs so that got me in the door.  I was 17 & happy as s**t. We did a leg of a tour with Dayglo Abortions. NOFX played a date on the bill. They drove up in a little white van back then.  Thanks for taking me out with ya guys. Interesting.
