What's a Total Fest without a fun-time, punky, drunky, party band? The studio recordings of Coconut Coolouts are one of those records that you throw on a Sunday morning while your trying to caffeinate your brain into piecing together what happened after hours. Each song is infectious with its raucous / pop energy and makes you wish you were seeing it live. I haven't seen the Coolouts, but, by all accounts, they put on one of the most fun live shows this side of the universe.
Listening to their records, there's a sense that each song is finished by chance; they're having such a good time that an explosion is on the horizon. There's nothing like bands that have the time of their lives as they play, and I, for one, am damn excited to see this translated in the flesh. With songs like "I Wanna Come Back (From the World of LSD)" and "We Drink Blood" you can expect the full gamut of joyful irreverence spewing from this 6 piece. Did I mention banana suits? You"ll leave the set dizzy and most likely in a fever, but you'll see the world in a whole new way.
