Atlanta punk trio The Coathangers just cruised into their 10th year of rockin’ — and to say they’ve come a long way is a huge understatement. The band began as a wild, no wave/garage-inspired ball of fun and chaos made up of friends who didn’t totally know how to play but wanted to start a band. Along the way, they’ve matured and picked up a broad range of inspiration, all while honing their sound and musicianship to a fine point. This charmer of a kiss-off single nearly burned down the damn studio, and all with the best, most punk instrumentation we’ve seen in awhile: drums, bass, and dog toy!
The Coathangers’ new album, Nosebleed Weekend, is available now from Suicide Squeeze Records.
