Excellent, It's about time for a good doc on these guys. Thanks for posting this.

This is awesome. I got into them assbackwards, starting with Down and then back-tracking the discographies of the members. A very under-appreciated band.

Oh well its not a doc, but a formal oral history will do.

Awesome. I started listening to them starting with Technocracy, and it's been years, but I'm looking forward to digging into this... I always thought their influence on all sorts of other artists from just about everybody in the NYHC scene all the way to Metallica (there's no way those angular, sludgy riffs of theirs didn't inspire some of the guitar work on "Justice for All," IMO) was grossly under-acknowledged.

GET THE NEW ONE IT JUST CAME OUT

It's super dark and doomy and old and fast and reverbed out (and I mean that in the best possible way).

Seriously, new COC and Crowbar! Definitely some lifesblood for the downtrodden.

Them and Valient Thorr are playing Raleigh Saturday night. Can't wait to check 'em out.

For the second time in as many days, an oral history for me to enjoy! I swear I'd read an oral history of the phone book if someone wrote one.

This is the third time in the last week that CoC has come up. It must be a sign!

Wow, CoC used to play in Flint, Michigan all the time! Thanks for the memories.

I think I wore out the tape of Technocracy I had, playing it over and over in my shitty off-brand walkman. Neat to see that they are still plugging along, decades later.

I move that America's Volume Dealer be struck from the record. Or at least let's pretend it was a different band that made that album.

I got into them even more ass backwards than Dark Messiah. A former coworker and friend became was the lead guitarist for Righteous Fool and also played with COC BLiND - which led me to backtrack to CoC proper.

I pretend it's a Load-era Metallica album with a different singer. It definitely does not feel like the other albums.

New CoC, new Crowbar and upcoming new Melvins! Woo!

Thanks for this.
