Also in the Blog news - D explains the lack of gigs in
The Salads' latest Blog.
Are you one of the many people wondering where all the gigs for this non-stop touring band went?

Well, first off, The Salads have recently switched booking agents. We were working with Omar at The Agency for quite some time, and now have switched over to Ryan at Live Tour Artists. Ryan has been a good friend of The Salads for a long time now, and we are very excited to be working with him.

Secondly, we are without a drummer for at least a few weeks (if not more), as Grant is playing drums on a US tour with Clive Davis' new prodige,
Landon Pigg.

We wish Grant all the best on these gigs, and look forward to his return so that The Salads can get back out on the road to rawk.

Oh man, I've been wanting to post this one for a while.

It's nap time. Excuse me, but I have some juice and a blankey waiting for me.

3rd Time's a Charm for Single Selection. [Sep. 3rd, 2006|09:57 am]

[music |Barenaked Ladies - Quality]

has finally answered our question about the latest single, suggesting to the world that it's now 'A Better Way'.

The full Scan can be found: Asslids > Posters/Scans.

The 2nd single had been announced by the band to be 'Powerless', but was instead followed by some random radio play of 'Got No Love' on FM96's Out Of The Box, and preceeded by 'Individual' also being played FM96 Live @ The Salt Lounge.

...Annnd, now they're saying it's 'A Better Way'.
Hey, the more Salads on the Radio, the better.

The scan also suggested some touring in October!

This just in, the new single is XXX,

Go say howdy--under 'Input'!
Be careful...that Chuck jerk is back though. Ugh.

Podcastin' Salads!
The Salads did a great Podcast with
indiecan: Episode 13, and there was quite a bit of news involved.
"Lucky Episode 13 features a rare live acoustic set with Chuck, Dave and Darren from Canada's ambassadors of good times, THE SALADS. Between Warped Tour dates, these fun loving indie veterans share some laughs, insights and a one-of-a-kind acoustic set of some of their greatest tunes."
They played an acoustic version of Take It To A Disco, Roth, and Get Loose!
The adlibbed singing that goes on during the songs is pretty amusing.
- Grant's recording drums for other people
- Darren does "commercial jingles and voice-overs" (Dude, that rocks.)
- The guys are already thinking of the next album, and how it's going to be more lighthearted again after The Big Picture getting the real stuff out.
- First Albums for all the guys.
- Dave's misheard lyrics (Salami, Dirty Jeans)
- Musicians: prepare to drive, and be brainless.
- Canadian Indie scene thoughts.
- Dave apologizes to the tomato town.
Dave: Benny & The Jets, Dirty Deeds
Darren: Dream Warriors, Gowan, Michael Jackson - Bad
Chuck: VanHalen - 1984, Michael Jackson - Thriller, Powerslave

Gig in Sept [Aug. 12th, 2006|11:31 pm]

[music |Mark Hoppus - Podcast #17 for HiMyNameIsMark, the home of Mark Hoppus]

I was getting drunk @ Norma Jean's tonight, and found a poster saying that The Salads are opening for Thornley/Bobnoxious/Default on September 22nd, 2006.

AT...Western Fairgrounds.

No time yet, and expensive-as-hell ($28.50), but a gig's a gig, right?
The tix can be picked up @ Norma Jeans on Huron St. here in London.

[music |Barenaked Ladies - Helicopters]

2 New reviews added, thanks to D!

Check out the Review4U.com one for sure for a great laugh--

"I remember a time when Pepsi Blue was the hottest berry flavoured cola on the market. I also recall the add that supported the beverage and the song that was pretty well dubbed it's jingle: "Get Loose" by The Salads..... Now to try and hold strong, The Salads have released their follow up 3 years later, in hopes that they won't go down in history as the band who had their 1 hit on a commercial for a cola that flopped."



Yeahhh...The Salads never did a Pepsi commercial.
The guy must have a HELL of a good recollection.


P I C   O F   T H E   P O S T :  : . . 

What a tough dude. Frankly, I'm scared.
