“Indie pop quartet All About Chad featured guitarist Asif Chaudhri, singer Ben Reiser, bassist Chad Pilieri, and drummer Jason Schreiber. After the release of the ‘Chad’s Very First Record’ single on Jeezus Peezus Records in 1991, the Brooklyn band set out to record their debut full-length. THIS THAT & THE OTHER THING was released in 1989, and was followed by 1991’s THE SCOUTING PARTY. 1992 saw the unveiling of the quirky JELLY SLIDE EP. They continued in 1993 with the ‘Chad’s Got an Earring’ single on It’s Only Pop Music Records. Big Pop Records released the band’s swan song, DOWN IN FRONT, in 1995. Recorded and produced by the band, the disc showcased the band’s endearing brand of indie pop music. The group called it quits soon after, but not before an impressive appearance on March Records’ stellar POP AMERICAN STYLE compilation in 1996 with the catchy ‘Japanese Couple in Reverse.’” — Artist Biography by Stephen Cramer
