We are pleased to announce the release of songs by post-Sweet Madness band Next Exit.
As they developed a new sound, much of their early live and recorded material was Sweet Madness songs.
to hear the music!
Sweet Madness was honored and humbled to be given a full set of five songs on the
KEXP New Year's Eve northwest Audioasis new wave show hosted by Brian Foss.
The show ended with their later incarnation Variant Cause
performing a Sweet Madness song: Are You Domesticated?
Thank you KEXP for playing Sweet Madness songs.
In 1981 Sweet Madness made plans to leave Spokane and move to Seattle.
Lead guitarist Greg Morlan had been playing in regional bands since he was 16,
and he joined to replace keyboardist John Robison.
While Sweet Madness continued playing their last gigs, the new lineup rehearsed
a new more guitar-oriented sound. With the English ska band Madness breaking out,
Sweet Madness decided to combine the Seattle move with a name change
to Next Exit (out of Spokane).
Next Exit performed their first gig with the new name at a Drive-In Movie theater
where they played on the roof of the concession stand.
Sweet Madness gives a shout out and a thank you to Sonic Trash Radio
on KYRS in Spokane for playing Sweet Madness. Check out Sonic Trash
on Tuesday nights from 8 to 10 pm on KYRS 88.1/92.3 FM or download off their site.
Sweet Madness and the movie SpokAnarchy get written up
and reviewed in "Exile in Hicksville."
Thank you Tony Kay!
