TV Coma Discussion of Music, Playing, and Being Just Like You!

Punk rock act TV COMA have a simple saying "TV Coma are just like you!" With that said, the band goes into discussion about themselves, music, and their plans ahead.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The history of the band is somewhat simple, yet thoroughly complex, something organic in to its core, yet, inherently man-made. One supposes that the band’s infancy was born through the infancy of its two truly fraternal members, though the fraternity of bandsman-ship is often as true as any made of skin and bone. To conceptualized this ‘band’ as such is, to put it lightly, pedestrian at best, this ensemble of troubadours, of flames, of mutual inspirations would always find one another in the gloom that makes up this post-millennial world.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The origin of appellation this artistic cooperative lies in the joining of its two halves, in the wholly artificial construction of the television, first demonstrated in the invention of John Logie Baird, but also the terrible sleep of the coma, which for centuries could have meant all but certain death to the individuals that fell to the condition.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The music of this troupe transcends a locale or specific geography resonating perfectly with a generation, un so very special, and many that shall come after. If pressed, our scene is the street, the coffee house, the art gallery, the local swimming pool. It is Nelsons Column, it is the Cutty Sark, it is the multi-story car park at The Corn Exchange. It is the local comprehensive school, it is the bins round the back of Tesco.

4. How would you describe your style?

Fashions come and go, but the way in which we present ourselves and our passion can only be truly appreciated in the flesh. From the array of instruments we dance with, to the fabrics that select us for our meticulously kept garments, to dove-hole our ‘style’ would be too crass.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Our works aren’t so much released by us, than we are released to the world via our fastidious works. Of late, they have been two arrangements, one "I don’t much care for Association Football", and one entitled simply "Trudy".

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Music shall always be new to those who hear it for the first time.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We’re always on tour, we’re always home, as each new venue and old we perform in becomes as a second home to us – to enlist the gentle assistance of a few lines of the poet Keith Buckley, "everywhere we go we’re the local boys and we’re back in town."

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

When one gets to a certain age, one cannot place too great an expectation upon anything. Seasons come and go, and the only inevitability is the low lope towards the next world. Love, and be good to one another is all that can be expected.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Have you tried the internet? We’ve heard rather good things about it as a tool for collaboration, discovering new music and the consumption of hefty quantities of pornography.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

TV Coma are just like you.
