A Coma - Trio B.C.
In Trio B.C.'s rowdier
moments, from the post-Stooges swagger Girl In A Coma bring to the
opening riff of "Baby Boy" to the marching boots and slashing
power chords of "Static Mind," they tear it up with more
reckless abandon than naming their band after a Morrissey single would
suggest, They're at their punkiest on "Joannie In The City, one
of two tracks co-produced by label chief Joan Jett (who also chimes
in on guitar and backing vocals) and her longtime collaborator Kenny
Laguna. It's clear which songs were born to rock a sweaty punk club,
but GIAC really hit their stride on the tracks that sound more like
the work of hardcore Moz fans, from the upbeat sugar rush of "In
The Day" to the bittersweet pop hooks of "Pink Lemonade"
and swooning majesty of "Trail." (BLACKHEART) Ed Masley
