Self-proclaimed "trash poet" John Wesley Coleman III incorporates indie rock slack with witty storytelling in his music. Hailing from Irving, Texas and living much like a drifter in East Austin, Coleman started engaging himself in a variety of creative activities in the mid-2000s: performing with psychedelic five-piece Golden Boys, doing standup comedy, painting, writing books and movie scripts, and recording solo material. Monofonus Press released Coleman's combination poetry book/CD, American Trashcan, in 2008, and followed it up with a 7" titled Ghettoblaster, which included a cover of George Michael's "Faith." His next full-length, Steal My Mind, was issued in 2009, before Permanent Records released Bad Lady Goes to Jail in 2010 and Daggerman Records dropped Little Miss Keith Richards. Coleman returned in 2012 with The Last Donkey Show, recorded in Oakland, California at Greg Ashley's Creamery studio, and at a friend's childhood home in Lockhardt, Texas, offering more of his uniquely colorful tales and a hint of maturity. Coleman remixed some of his own material from American Trashcan for the 2012 release Nightmare On Silly Street, and in 2014 he teamed up with the respected West Coast indie label Burger Records to put out the album The Love That You Own.
Wooing is NYC's newest psychedelic band. Formed by Rachel Trachtenburg in early 2016. The sound is inspired by 60's Syd Barrett vibes meets Helium and The Breeders. Wooing just finished recording with producer Bryce Goggin. The premier EP DayDream Time Machine has songs about freeing the whales at SeaWorld and the 1950's LSD experiment on housewives. Rachel met Wooing's guitarist JR Thomason while she was a guest backup singer for the
low-fi legend R Stevie Moore. With Rachel's background in music (starting with playing the drums at age six in her family's band The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players) and JR's experimental rock influences their new band has a very original sound. Rosie Slater on drums pulls the three piece all together.
Sincere vocals matched with trippy echoing guitars, Wooing will sweep you off your feet.
