The Coffin Daggers


Here is another great find from over at Incognito Music Magazine.

Loyal reader, I don’t have to tell you that we celebrate the unusual here at Incognito HQ. If you’ve read this blog only once, you know that. Last week, we featured a band I described this way: “The music of WaveSauce is like the soundtrack for a movie about a surfing spy…directed by Ed Wood.” Well, the music of The Coffin Daggers would also be good for a movie. I think this band would provide a perfect soundtrack for a black and white monster movie that somehow involves surfing. Maybe the monster in question preys on surfers and one day picks the wrong surfer to mess with. Mind you, I wrote that before I even heard “Monsters from the Id,” a song on the band’s ReverbNation page complete with horror-movie screams.

What really makes this perfect for a monster movie is the organ. It somehow lends an ominous tone to the music that would be perfect for a monster movie. The rest of the instrumentation has a gritty garage sound that is also pretty apropos for a B monster movie.  I have the feeling that some surf purists might not really consider The Coffin Daggers a surf band. Sure, these guys put a lot of gritty rock n roll into their sound, but it doesn’t make the sound any less surf. If you like fuzzy surf rock, check out the band.

    Are you familiar with the Bizzaro Superman stories? Both these tunes would be perfect for a Bizzaro surf movie. Imagine a Bizzaro Edd Byrnes;Tuesday Weld;Bobby Darren and Annette Funicello. Of course Ed Wood should direct it. Unless you wanted to go the Bizzaro surf secret agent route. Than I suggest Sam Peckinpah.
