TSAR’s bitchin’ self-titled debut on Hollywood Records rocked my MONOstereo in a big way when it materialized in 2000. Like many before and after them, they suffered from a seemingly indifferent promotion team at Hollywood and made nary a dent on mainstream or college radio. Despite failing to make such crucial inroads, the album was a near-jaw dropping stunner, offering cheery, colossal hooks and amped-out guitar swaths. Think Silver Sun, or maybe Jellyfish on steroids. A little bit 'o glam doesn't do them a disservice either.
Though the aforementioned debut failed to fly off shelves, Hollyweird Records saw it fit to put out a promo ep of TSAR non-lp goodies, i.e. outtakes, demos of completely unreleased songs, and some live cuts. In addition, I’m also tacking on a quartet of live songs from this period that the band recorded for a British SBN Session (whatever that is). Don’t look at me, I live in the States. I just download this shit.
