Upon the release of their last album Philadelphia Weekly described Taggart as “harking back to underground rock’s golden age during the half-decade leading up to Nevermind. The guitars are sweet and crunchy like super sugar crisp, purveying tasty hooks coated in distortion and jagged edges with gruff, half-yelped vocals reminiscent of Eric Bachmann (Archers of Loaf)”. A Philadelphia institution for over 20 years Taggart has never taken a break from writing, performing and recording. Over the years they’ve had the opportunity to open for some of their biggest influences, including Portastatic, Tommy Stinson, and even acted as Grant Hart’s backing band on a few Husker Du songs. They will self-release their latest full length album, L’maskin, on February 23rd, 2018.
