> Consentual Selections
CD (Fat Wreck)
Over the course of their career the Mad Caddies have crafted an exclusive genre of music, separating them from the masses of carbon copy bands. Combining elements of punk, ska, roots reggae, country and even Dixieland jazz, the Mad Caddies music stands alone as truly exceptional. guided by polished vocals, their songs echo an ethos of fun-loving laid back living. The lively and sometimes jovial nature of their music paired with the band members' remarkable musicianship and endearing stage manner, has helped to amass a thriving and loyal fan base. With 6 studio albums and 1 live record already to their credit the Mad Caddies realized that it was high time to compile a list of favorites, which is exactly what they did with Consentual Selections. As a band strongly connected with their audience, they opted to let their faithful followers weigh in on which tracks should appear on this collection by actually voting for their favorites. This is a unique approach when compiling a 'greatest hits' album, but when considered, is quite possibly the most sensible. Not only is Consentual Selections a collection of 22 bona fide hit songs that would delight even the casual listener, it also features 2 brand new tracks to boot. In addition, the packaging and booklet boast a track by track commentary written by the Mad Caddies and over 150 photos. Basically, Consentual Selections is essential listening for the uninitiated fan and die-hard fan alike.
