***Medical Records continues to cut the strings presenting something just a tad askew. Hailing from the underground Los Angeles scene in the mid '80s arose a couple of musicians that created some of the most off-kilter, complex and yet exquisitely crucial art rock music that no one has ever heard. Featuring the key duo of BRAD LANER (SAVAGE REPUBLIC, MEDICINE, ELECTRIC COMPANY, etc.) and DAVID CHRISMAN (3 DAY STUBBLE), STEAMING COILS was a project that also involved multiple other like minds from the L.A.F.M.S. (Los Angeles Free Music Society) amongst other misfits and kooks. They released a total of 3 albums including Never Creak (1986), The Tarkington Table (also 1987) and finally 1988’s Breaded. Technically, there is also an unreleased 4th album as well… For Breaded, the Steaming Coils honed their craft into a well-oiled but no less experimental machine. Featuring JAMES GRISBY (MOTOR TOTEMIST GUILD), DON BOLLES (GERMS, ARIEL PINK'S HAUNTED GRAFFITI), TOM RECCHION (LAFMS), plus a slew of others. The tunes almost transcend description but culminate into a perfect pop album completely drenched in free-form passages, cut and paste tape experiments, atypical song structures and other elements that are equally difficult to make easy comparisons. Don’t get us wrong or be frightened, this album is an intensely engaging listen and managed to walk that razor’s edge between pop music and progressive experimental “inaccessible music”. Presented in a full color jacket with original front cover art (chromosomal collage, if you will) on high quality 180-gram colored vinyl with a bonus 7-inch featuring tracks from the unreleased 4th album (featuring JIM GOODALL of FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS and Medicine) and EDDIE RUSCHA from SECRET CIRCUIT, also on colored wax. Limited Edition.
