Love Coma

Alternative Rock
San Antonio, Texas, USA

Chris Taylor formed the band Love Coma in 1992 and became a pseudo famous garage band that toured and travelled all over the United States and beyond. Chris wrote all the songs and Chris Dodds, Matt Slocum, Jeff Duncan and Chris Mattingly shaped them into wild rock n roll abandon. Taylor broke up Love Coma in 1997 but remains friends with the band as rumors abound for a possible reunion…”

From BandCamp: “I formed Love Coma along with drummer Chris Dodds in 1993. Matt Slocum played guitar on this album and toured with us for several years before creating the band Sixpence None the Richer. This was our first studio experience and was really a glorified demo session that became our first album. Thanks to Etcetera Records for releasing this on CD shortly after.”

From BandCamp: “It was 1995… I was an insecure kid fronting a rock and roll band… the worst kind of position to be in. I thought way too much about myself, my look, how other people felt about me. So much that the music gave me head aches to write. Second guessing everything I wrote down. We made a big sound though… and got my hero Michael Roe of The 77s to produce our record. It was about this time everything was falling apart for me… so I just dove head first into a Love Coma.

We drove from Texas to California and with limited studio experience, we brought our rock and roll into Paradise Studios for basic tracking and then John Flanagan's Plaid Jacket Studios for vocal and guitar overdubs.

The whole is stronger than the sum of it's parts… and we have Michael Roe to thank for that!”
