John Coffey: Bright Companions

Dutch quintet John Coffey are loud. Really fucking loud. But underneath all the mayhem on their new album Bright Companions they have buried smart guitar lines and tasty keyboard fills. These guys know exactly what they want. John Coffey are not about destroying the house, but building a new one, slightly skewed but fun.

It's not punk, it's not rock as such. It's a spicy mixture that makes you thirsty and begging for more. If it's too loud, you're too old. Earplugs not included.

John Coffey:
Alfred: guitar
Carsten: drums
Christoffer: guitar
David: vocals, synths
Richard: bass
