Coffinberry Guitarist Talks About New Disc

Posted By on Wed, May 2, 2007 at 3:31 PM

Coffinberry have been one of the city’s brightest indie-rock bands for years now, though the new God Dam Dogs finally marks their full-length debut. (Read more about it in this week’s Scene). It’s a complete departure from their first proper EP, 2005’s From Now On Now, and while the discs kick an equal amount of arse, we were still curious where such a pronounced change from. Guitarist Tony Janicek explained: “We weren't really going for something different. It was pretty natural, but this is our first full-length, and the first time we spent some time in the studio recording -- as opposed to the first EP, where we just recorded the band playing live one day. After From Now on Now, we recorded at home more and put out that cassette EP, Sleush, so we were more comfortable recording in general. Then we just wrote some new songs and did God Dam Dogs. Living together in the same house has helped, ‘cause most every song gets recorded whether or not we ever play it or listen to it again. You should come out on May 5th, should be fun.” Coffinberry hosts a CD release party Saturday, May 5 at Beachland Tavern. Doors 9 p.m., $5 cover (all ages). This Moment in Black History opens the show, and if you haven’t seen them yet, you need to. -- D.X. Ferris
