Biografía

A principios de 1990, el cantante Cliff Jones, ex periodista, empezó a desarrollar la IDEA de lo que sería Gay Dad. En 1994, grabaron un demo que fue tan desastroso que nadie les daba pelota, hasta un año después cuando hicieron su debut en vivo.
1996 fue el año de acercamiento de Jones a la psicodelia y al glam-rock, y dio como fruto otro demo, en esta oportunidad, no tan malo. Un año mas tarde firmarían con London Records, para recién en el 98’ sacar el single que se llamaría «To earth with love», que se transformó en un hitazo en el Reino Unido.

    @unfazed - I have a few-songs-heard snooty personal prejudice going against Silversun Pickups, so I don't know. But part of the anti feeling has to do with what I hear as their abuse of elements of Smashing Pumpkins, so I know at least that part is in the mix! I'll give each of their albums a run through to see if I hear the song that was Gay Dadesque. Friends have been wanting me to give Silversun Pickups more of a chance for a long time, so I can kill two birds there. Thanks very much for suggesting a place for me to look, listening-wise.

    Yesterday I heard a song that reminded me of Gay Dad, perhaps with splashes of Coldplay and Smashing Pumpkins. The "Similar Artists" here are mostly just other britpop bands, not really a match in sound . . does anyone know a currently-producing band with a reminiscent sound? I also saw Gay Dad live, and agree they were amazing. But I was less impressed with Transmission, and definitely think the name was limiting. Not bad, but not the most sensible for success. I still wish they'd stuck around longer, to see how they might have evolved/what else they would have produced. A lot of Leisure Noise was great, and showed proper respect of fantastic influences.

    Definitely a contender for worst band name ever, simply because it was most certainly why many people didn't take them seriously. Both albums, particularly the debut, are solid pieces of work.
