THE COILS Reform and Announce Two New Tracks

The Coils

The Coils

40 years after The Coils first formed, all four original members have now got back together and recorded these TWO new tracks. They were inspired to do so after their appearance on Bored Teenagers #9 and the world is celebrating 40 YEARS OF PUNK ROCK!

These two new tracks are ultra-catchy and will have you humming them all day! Available on CD/ download from Detour Records and iTunes.

The Coils were once described as a band that left a nasty taste in your mouth and more recently as one of the best undiscovered punk rock bands of the 70’s.
Forty years after they first got together at the age of seventeen playing songs that reflected the life surrounding them with borrowed equipment and an attitude to match, The Coils are releasing their first recordings in 40 years on the Only Fit For The Bin record label.

Following the inclusion of their original recordings from the summer of 1978 on the highly collectable Bored Teenagers 9 Undiscovered Punk series (Bin Liner Records), the band have written and recorded two new songs that they feel reflect: “What it feels like to be a bloke who’s seen his best, if you know what I mean”.

Gary Nattrass, Gavin Burns, David Dwek and Andrew Hodgson have never been in the same place at the same time since their schooldays in Morpeth. Today they may rely on heart medication and an early night, but they are definitely “up for this” and are planning a reunion in a room above a pub somewhere soon!
The first track “Do You Remember?” should trigger some glorious (and yet melancholic) memories for anybody who “was there” as a teenager in 1977. As it says; “Laughing with your eyes, disappointment was a surprise.”

The second track “Bam-Bam” can be played at any speed. It’s about the sharp-suited wide-boys and girls who are sucking the life out of Britain and its public services which are very sadly disappearing fast as the “Upper Class Cretins” get even richer.

The original ethos of the band was always to play it once then sod off, however these two new tracks have been digitally produced over time with Gary managing to tease out an authentic 70’s punk sound, using an original analogue mixing desk in the final mix stages.
