The members of the Mad Caddies are as diverse as the music they perform but their most notable member is lead vocalist Chuck. Despite his penchant for booze and all things smokable, Chucks amazing voice prevails and his crooning could make even Morrissey blush.

With 6 studio albums and 1 live record already to their credit the MAD CADDIES realized it was high time to compile a list of favorites, which is exactly what they did with Consentual Selections.
