Philadelphia Weekly recently 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 band for over 15 years Taggart has released four full length records and has been featured on numerous compilations. In recent years they’ve opened for some of their biggest influences, including Portastatic and Tommy Stinson, and even acted as Grant Hart’s backing band on a few Husker Du songs. They self-released their latest cd For What It’s Worse in September of 2011.
