Seiche & Dose After Dose update
Now Playing: Kyuss "Demon Cleaner"
Topic: Minor change or comment

The "It's Psychedelic Baby" blog clears up some vital data regarding Chicago hardrock band Seiche, whose retrospective album on Hexamon is one of the best archival releases from anywhere in the past 15 years; dynamite progressive hardrock way ahead of its time.

Most of the info in the Acid Archives 2nd Ed entry checks out, with band leader Steve Zahradnik confirming a demo press release of 150 copies (the AA book says 100) of the original Seiche album; recorded ca 1978-79 but not pressed up until 1981.

SEICHE (Chicago, IL)
Demo Press 1981 (no label)
[150p; 50 with color cover, 100 in plain white cover]
Dose After Dose 1999 (Hexamon 001) [partial reissue; 500#d; 2 inserts]
Seiche 2006 (CD Warp Drive) [full reissue of the 1981 LP]

The rest of the material on the Hexamon release is not 'Seiche' but a later band called 'Dose After Dose' (this became the title for the Hexamon album). These tracks are more recent than has been stated in the past; Zahradnik places them in the 1990s, which is interesting considering how well they fit with the late '70s recordings. The Hexamon liner notes clearly indicate which tracks are from the Seiche and Dose After Dose eras, respectively.

Name: "Steve Zahradnik"


Just to clear this up, of the 150 copies of the original Seiche LP, only 50 had actual artwork, while the other 100 had the plain white cover.

Take care.

Steve Zahradnik
