TV COMA is an up and coming, popular rock music collective consisting of numerous talented musical minds set on taking you to another plane of existence through musically perfect virtuosity and “farty” kazoos.
On their Facebook Page, they say this of themselves – “TV COMA are a self-hating millennial rock band from St. Albans, Hertfordshire. Raised on a lean diet of crap beer and Weezer albums, song-writing siblings Leo and Max Troy join forces with drum whiz Robert Clark and deeply unemployed bassman Jamie Rider to pump out power pop earworms. Sure, they might look like Manson Family rejects, but don’t let the beardy vibe weird you out. TV COMA are just like you.”
Truth, they are a fun loving band with a no image of taking themselves too seriously, but they seriously make great music that feels good to hear and be a part of.
IPM: What inspired you to write music like you do
It’s just about our experiences in the modern paradigm dude. It’s important to keep track of our flow yeah and our songs are a sequenced emotionally resonant colour arc that totally tracks the development and ever-shifting nature of our quotidian lives. It’s a pretty important job, but we’re lucky to have been chosen to be the successor to Fozzie Bear (the best comedian ever we all love him so much).
IPM: Tell us about the other members of the band, and of your chemistry.
Some people might say we formed the band, but the band actually formed us. It’s just like, you know, when everyone’s on the same wavelength yeah, and everything just kind of comes together you can really create the right vibe for where the world is at. There’s a lot of negative energy in the world yeah and we want to stamp that out with some pure positive funny vibey party time.
IPM: What are or were some of the challenges for you in producing or performing while keeping true to your vision of your music.
It’s hard when you know you’ve got a real connection with the universe and somebody tries to disrupt that connection. It’s like, get off my flow man. We have a responsibility to channel the vibes that we’ve been gifted with and if you’re in my flow with your negative purple aura it’s just not the way to go man. Like get off my flow man.
IPM: Tell us about some of your recent shows and performances.
We prefer to not call them “shows.” We take part in experiences if you get what I mean? We did this great one a few weeks or days ago or something in a place called The Turnip Lounge or somewhere and there was some great flame drip painting on the walls and I got some glitter on my face it was great. It’s important to really get in the zone when you’re on stage. It’s all about the right vibe at the right time.
Our live experience is more about the mood and the atmosphere, than the music. We only care about presenting a positive area for all our fellow beings to exist in. After all, we are all one on this earth. Together. Love will always win over hate. Also Jamie (a.k.a cookie) does that little dancey dance with his hips and we all scream in pain really so loud that we can no longer feel our faces, we are always in pain.
IPM: Any Albums coming out soon or shows you are looking to promote
We have an album that we’re not going to release because it’s seriously too good. Like, we’re worried about the impact it’s going to have. It’s full of very serious songs about social issues and sexy stuff like that. Other than that, we have some new “music” in the works.
IPM: Any “strange tales” or things that may have happened during a show that seemed too weird to be true?
Once we were playing this gig and there was this sexy fighty man who wanted to get into a fight with all of us. He was so angry and we were all really attracted to him. He was such an alpha male we all loved him so much.
IPM: Where do you see your music going, where would you like to be in the near future, goals, dreams and passions?
We want our cool music to only be played in Shoreditch gardening communes, sustainable craft breweries and vegan shoe shops. That’s where legacies start and dreams are MADE.
IPM: What would you like our readers to know about you, Why do you think that they would enjoy your music.
We want them to know that they be not alone. Whatever they be going through we be right there for them, they can listen to the music when they be sad, or angry about the world. When everything be looking bad just put on some TV COMA and the world be bright again. TV COMA are just like you.
IPM: Where can our readers find your music?
