Sam Coomes: Bugger Me
Sam Coomes is probably best known as one half of the long running underground pop duo Quasi, who've managed to release 9 or 10 albums on labels such as Up, Domino and Touch & Go. Coomes has also toured and/or recorded with numerous other artists such as: Elliott Smith, Built To Spill, Jandek and many other less recognizable names. Bugger Me is his first solo album, and it was recently described as "Suicide meets Plastic Ono era John Lennon." "I'll take that!" says Coomes, "but actually it's probably a little more accurate to call it Suicide meets the Beach Boys. Not the sophisticated Pet Sounds Beach Boys, but more like "Surfer Girl" type stuff."
