My Picks: “Doo Dad” by The Coalition

“Doo Dad” by The Coalition

A  few years back I was in a band called The Coalition, which also featured Scott Healy, Michael Merritt and Shawn Pelton.  In 2004, we recorded and released a CD called Naked Movies (which is available right here on this website!) on Midlantic Records.  It was later re-released on Fractal Entertainment and I have no idea where it is now.  Anyway, this toe-tapper was from our original demo and sadly it never made the final CD.  It is a little number I thoughtfully and affectionately titled “Doo Dad”  This group was trying to blur the lines a bit and at times trying to emulate the collective, group improvisations of early jazz, but in a modern context.  Scott used only vintage keyboards and no synths, and everything was recorded live – with exception of “Drum Sandwich” – but with pre-production and mayhem/percussion tracks for the CD.   If you dig it, check out the Naked Movies CD…’s pretty wild.
