I think there is a connection between Ssaladd and Slugabed (aka Greg Feldwick), but I’m not too sure what. According to Bandcamp, Ssaladd is bassist Harrison, drummer Toby, and Gregory “Fendering The Rhodes”. Perhaps this is Gregory Feldwick? Anyways, the new ‘Ssaladd EP’ has been released on Feldwick’s on London-based Activia Benz label.
