From what I’ve been able to gather, Claude Coma was San Diego’s answer to Wayne County and the Electric Chairs, insofar as the man was a cross-dresser and an older guy with older rock influences. While this LP came out in 1982, what we have here is more along the lines of Class of ’77 KBD-ish Punk with one notably un-Punky tune and a couple of songs that sound a bit like early Radio Birdman. Another notable feature about this LP is that the man can clearly play guitar, but prefers playing shit Punk in lieu of showcasing his technical skill—you gotta love that! He has been written about elsewhere on the web, for anyone who cares to find out more, but what remains unclear to me is his discography. I’ve heard tell that this was his only album, but I know I’ve seen at least one other record. What’s the deal? At any rate, this is an honest Punk record from an old school Punk weirdo and it’s worth a listen.
And here’s the backwards message on “Let’s Go To Hell”.
