Yo ! Long time no Spanky....So, I just saw the caddies twice!! Once in Ottawa and once in Montréal. Fack, they put on the best live show I think I've seen up to this point. At least as far as Caddies shows go. They even had an intro which was WAY cool. I took tons of pictures in Ottawa, so I will get those up as soon as I can get the rest of the roll shot off. I am an idiot. I didn't bring my camera to the Montréal show. As we were leaving my friend's apartment, I decided not to bring it, thinkin it would suck to carry it around after the show. I wouldn't have minded it at all, BUT we were supposed to meet the Cads at a place called Bifteck. We talked to Sascha outside after the show in Ottawa, and he said they usually go to Bifteck after Montréal shows. SO, we went there but no Caddies :( I think I know where they went actually. Right next door !!!! We walked about 20 mins to where they were supposed to come. We ended up pounding a bunch back, and had a fun night. So, on to what Sascha said. Yes, there will be a Live in a Dive coming. They recorded it in Toronto at The Opera House. Should be pretty sweet. He also said they will be doin a small tour this summer, not sure where, but after that is finished up, they will be headin' back to sit down and write some new stuff for us!!!!!! SWEEET ! How good is life now ?!!? It just got much better. Anywho, sorry to not update forever. I'm gonna post my pictures from the Ottawa show soon. I'll let ya know when they are up. Also, I will try to update more often. I am gonna try to set something up where everyone should be able to get the live videos I have of them in Italy. I also need a bunch of them so I'm hoping Arne will hook me up, then people will be able to get the videos. Should be sweet. Anywho, bye for now!

I found out today that the Caddies did a Split EP with Flashlight Brown. It was put out by Double A Records. It featured 'Falling Down' and 'Days Away.'

I coulnd't believe my eyes when I saw that Arne had pictures from the march show in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada(where I live). Go to The Gentleman and then go to the Pics page and then go down to the "ottowa......" pics.

As well, I found some sweet pictures from March 20th, 2002, @ Flamingo Cantina, in (im not sure if this is where it was, but who cares) Austin, Texas.
go here for pics
Noember 19, 2003
So, it's 5:30 in the morning. I am not going to bed tonight. fuckin school work! Anywho, the main page has reached 10,000 hits. Now, that is cool, but it means absolutely nothing. What if you come to every other page except for the main page. Well, it won't get counted. So, it is totally inaccurate. Ah well. I have a Cads fan in France (i think) who is currently working on the bass tab for Sad Reggie. It should be about a week before it is posted. I guess that is all for now. P EA CE

Went to Warped Tour last week and saw the Caddies among many others...they played some different stuff this time which surprised us. They played Drinking For 11, Silence, Leavin, Weird Beard, The Gentleman, The Belltower, Monkeys, and possibly a few others but I just got up not even 5 minutes ago so I don't even know what's going on....zzzzzz....SEE THEM AT WARPED! I don't know when the last date is for Warped but get your ass out there and in the pit !

March 15, 2003
all i have to say is "OH MY GOD!"...we drank with the mad caddies after the show on thursday! how fuckin sweet is that to drink with your favourite band. they were so cool. mark was the shit and my fave(a bass player thing). keith was awesome too. the 2 girls i was with were in love with him. they played an awesome set and played 2 or 3 of the new songs. you can expect to hear villains and last breath most likely at the show. and they played around with preppy girl and you wont recognize it at all at the start. oh, when we were about to cross the street to go to the royal oak, some guy that sascha knew came up to him and said "you owe todd bigtime". what happened was that some kid had grabbed sascha's les paul and started walking away with it out back where they were loading the instruments up and luckily this guy todd, who i think is in one of the 2 opening bands, saw the kid and snagged it back. that is an expensive, very nice guitar, and sascha is very lucky to still have it. i would have been pissed! I asked some questions about random things to some of the guys and here are a few of the answers for ya:

Why the mohawks?
well, it was sascha's birthday over in europe and they just did it on a whim, no reason. of course, ed didnt't do it if you haven't noticed already.

Who is the girl singing in the s.o.s chorus?
It was Keith's ex-girlfriend. she was really good

What are the lyrics in the belltower right before the chorus?
"you can have my body but don't let my spirit die"

What are the background lyrics in cup o tea?
They weren't sure of the first line but the rest go like this:
chuck your custard
i really hate horns
mark likes kiddie porn

Will Sweet Action ever release a full length album?
NO !

March 13, 2003

Hey kiddies! We're almost there! Just One More is out in a few weeks. How awesome is that? I must admit, I have the songs already(all of em thats for sure), and I found them off Kazaa...but rest assured, I'm buying the CD 2 days after it is released when I have the pleasure of seeing the caddies for the 3rd time in my skankin life....and I hope the rest of you guys buy the cd! It's wicked! I had the highest expectations in the world out of all of you after waiting for sooo long for a new album. And when I first heard it, I was disappointed and thought it was their worst stuff to date....but that's only because my expections were well, let's just say a smidgeon too high...but now that I have heard it numerous times, I am totally in love with it and would say it's their best stuff yet. I have noticed that Keith and Mark have gotten so much better.... it blows my mind. Also, the rest of the band has gotten amazing as well, and I am quite happy with Brian's drumming. But Keith and Mark I give props to for rising so much higher than before. I am in love with Last Breath. What a damn wicked song. Kind of like falling down but a bit faster and not as serious...

I have taken the liberty of tabbing out a few songs already... Last Breath of course cuz it's so facking amazing, Rockupation, and Good Intentions. I am also workin on Day By Day and another but I can't think of what the hell it is right now.....the thing is, I am not lettin you see the tabs until the album comes out! heh heh how evil of me. tsk tsk, spanky....but don't worry they'll be up within a few days of the release date of March 11th.

One last thing before I leave ya for tonight...the new official site should be up by tomorrow...let us hope... it will still be the same address, www.madcaddies.com but there will be a new look to the site...
February 03, 2003
It's 2:30 in the morning and everything sux.. so i'm updating the site. There are some tabs which I can't even believe I have up yet. For example, the tabs for leavin. I even did the bass tab myself and corrected the guitar tabs, which still need more fixing. SO! here are the new tabs...

leavin(bass)
booze cruise(guitar)
depleted salvo(updated)

It's now 3:00 in the morning...and im finally done. lates! yes, i said lates!

Long time, no update! I've been here at Algonquin College for the last few months learning nothing...I haven't found too much for my site the last few months and I've never thought of doing anything to the site. I get wrapped up in other things now. However, I am adding some stuff for sure right now. And I shall try to keep it up regularly.

From the official site: "Tour Update Keith broke his two front teeth while rocking his trumpet. The dentist says it will be at least 3 weeks till he can play so we will be postponing our Reno, Tahoe, Orangevale, and Santa Barbara shows. We will try and make them up in January."

More tabs posted.
Easy Cheese Bass Tab
We'll Start To Worry...Guitar Tab
September 20, 2002
Another quote from the official site. "San Francisco Fun Hey there dudes and dudettes, so we are now here in the foggy bay recording our new album and lots of neat stuff has happened! Chuck bought a mountain bike for $16 from a crack head (sorry to the former owner) and also saw a shark with its head bitten off while surfing. No one believed Brian after telling us a tale of sighting a herd of sheep and goats in the heart of downtown S.F. but Sascha later confirmed the rumor to be true. Ed has been seen performing at a small club in the castro district in between horn sessions entertaining crowds with his best rendition of a latin Cher! Stories of Keith and Mark involving El Salvadorean cuisine a dark alley and a $10 friend have been making there way back to the studio. So over all, we are having a great time! More later, Chuckles Von Buckles "
September 05, 2002
Another quote from the official site. "Moving right along...Mad Caddies are officially recording a new record as of this week at Motor studios in SF. As Mark questions about the new record here ...Also be sure to check out madcaddies.net it kicks way more ass than madcaddies.com!"

college sucks.

saw voodoo glow skulls and suicide machines and groovie ghoulies on the weekend. All 3 were fuckin amazing shows. wicked pits too. got the scars to prove it. check them all out now !!!! later.

The guitar tab for Medium Unwell ahs been sitting on my computer for so long but i just realized it wasn't up. *DUH* The chorus notes are missing but all you have to do is look at the bass tabs. same notes, just play a power chord over it. Anywho, here it is med unwell

Happy birthday to my dad! 50 yrs old. A fellow by the name of Matthieu Gaudet sent me the guitar tabs to Sad Reggie. right here
I should have the tabs to chevy novacaine soon too.

Here's a little something from the official site.. "No News Is Good News!!! "What's the deal?! No updates, no content! This website sucks!" We know, we are just lazy bastards and never update anything...Deconstruction Tour was KICK ASS, we will be in the studio (actually the garage) for the summer recording, the record will be out this winter. Any other questions, comments or suggestions?"
