Coughs - Fright Makes Right (2005)

The first album from Chicago's now defunct Coughs. Cannot tell you how inspired i was the first time i heard this album. Sorta non-musicians being super musicians with lots of simple parts arranged in smart ways. Load Records, who put the album out on CD, describes them as "energy driven noisy punk," which isn't inaccurate in the sense that like Coltrane is "passionate," or pizza is "cheese on bread"


  1. nice map! What's going on with Kansas being in the gang? Seems like Kansas just played it cool and didn't mention anything to Nebraska or South Dakota that everyone was getting together for a group picture.

  2. You gotta have Kansas! As I understand it, Shawnee is like the new, throbbing pulse of the scene.
