The Oxford Coma
The Oxford Coma
Psychedelic Anxiety Rock and/or The World's Heaviest Jam Band from Phoenix, Arizona, USA

The Oxford Coma is a 3-piece band that writes autobiographical information in third-person, that has tendencies toward art-metal and psychedelic rock, and that sometimes brings in a fourth member to play a second drum kit...because, well, two drummers is double awesome. They (we) combine crafty (yes, we just called something we do 'crafty') engineering and old-school stage lighting tactics with heavy drop-tuned arrangements and improvised psychedelic jams when playing live...making them (us [as far as we know]) unique in the Phoenix metal and heavy rock communities. The whole idea behind this band is to combine the weirdness and freshness of improvisation (a la Primus, the whole genre of jazz, and most of the rock in the 60s and 70s), with the intensity and honesty of good metal (a la Neurosis and eyehategod), and the lasting impact of innovative rock (Nirvana, Tool, (the) Melvins, NIN, Radiohead). They (we) also enjoy parenthetical notation and tongue-in-cheek humor...much to the chagrin of their (our) publicist/manager.
