Coma biography
COMA formed in 1971 in Frederikshavn with some of the ex-members of the band RAMASJANG, and some of the earliest members were Uffe MARKUSSEN, Flemming FRIBERG and Jakob MYGIND. The stable line-up of the band was made in 1973 with the addition of Klaus THRANE, Viggo BERTELSEN and Leif CHRISTENSEN, with whom they made their debut Financial Tycoon in 1977. The complicated sound of this avantgarde jazz rock band is harder to describe, which is seen in their taste of musicians they apreciate: KING CRIMSON, JOHN COLTRANE, FRANK ZAPPA and JIMI HENDRIX; and it can be heard on Financial Tycoon that they were not strangers to some eastern music as well. After their debut they released Amoc in 1980, and not limited to music, they were active in local political activities in Frederikshavn and remained active through the early 80's releasing some singles. COMA can be recommended to people who like their already mentioned role models (especially ZAPPA, their instrumental and lyrical inspiration) and music with some similarities to NATIONAL HEALTH, GONG and SUPERSISTER.

Review by Mellotron Storm

5 stars For my money this album is one of the best to come out of Denmark, in fact right now I'd say it's my favourite. I'd also mention SECRET OYSTER's "Furtive Pearl" and DR. DOPO JAM's "Entree" as possibly my top three from that nation. All three have that jazzy style that I love and certainly "Financial Tycoon" and "Entree" have strong Zappa influences both instrumentally and lyrically. Other bands I thought of while listening to "Financial Tycoon" were early KRAAN and SUPERSISTER. The band thanks Jimmy Carter, the CIA and Frank Zappa among others. Funny guys as the three tracks with lyrics attest. This was released in 1977 and the lyrics would really be considered politically incorrect these days(haha). Lots of sax and guitar in fact there are two guitarists.

"Up From The Sump..." is something like 21 seconds of spacey but dramatic sounds before "Financial Tycoon 1" kicks in. I really dig the melody to this one as the horns blast away. It settles back after 1 1/2 minutes then the humerous vocals kick in. So good. A nice sax/ drum section eventually follows then the guitar comes in lighting it up. I love the tone of the guitar. "Peter Grynt" has a feel good sound to it at first but then the tempo picks up and the guitar joins in picking away. Sax comes in as well with guns a blazing. I like how melancholic the guitar is that follows. "One Of Them Crazy Gurues In Love" is pleasant and jazzy with relaxed horns. Vibes later as the horns and drums continue. "Fulton" is a top four and this ends side one. How good does this sound!? Again the guitar just hits the spot for me. It then settles into a relaxed horn led section, in fact it's quite psychedelic here. The guitar is back along with a yell. Themes are repeated.

"Financial Tycoon 2" opens with the guitar and sax trading solos before it settles and the vocals arrive. Funny stuff. Instrumentally I'm thinking early GONG then we get some soaring guitar later. A top four. "A Hard Banana" has a catchy beat with guitar and sax playing over top. Some impressive drum work here and throughout this album really. "Frank Felding" is a top four with that heavier sound and how about that sax solo. More heaviness then it settles back as vibes help out. "... Down From The Trees" has guest violin leading the way in this short instrumental piece. "Tumbling Shadows" is my final top four. Sax eventually leads the way but it trades off with the guitar. Vocals arrive then some dissonant sax when he stops singing. Nice guitar work halfway through as he is ripping it up. So impressive. It settles late as the vocals return along with sax. The guitar is back with 2 minutes to go and it turns chaotic just before the song ends.

Complex yet so funny certainly describes Zappa doesn't it? And this album from COMA as well. I believe a couple of these amazing instrumentalists from this band now play with Robin Taylor who is still putting out great music. This is almost flawless for my tastes and deserves the 5 star rating.

3 stars Unusually good progressive jazzrock experiment gone terribly right, Denmark ensemble Coma's Amoc kicks some ass and made this grizzled veteran smile more than once, showing a band quite well versed in their understanding of rock and how it can interlope with almost any other form of music, even the unwilling ones. A creepy whistle intros 'Savværket', Jakob Mygind's sax leads a shaky mix as the band finds a pace, Viggo Steincke Bertelsen's fiery guitar pulling out a groovy vamp and some serious riffage that heats up nicely merging into 'Pigerne fra Himmelbjerget', funky 'Pulp', and cerebral 'Heavy Winter'.

'En saftig brosten' was (even in 1980) retro space-age fusion; 'Orientexpressen' tastily bobs & weaves and kicks out the rhythm; 'Love and Madness' is romantic pap; But the title cut is a prog/fusion honker reminding of John McLaughlin's dirtier days. Not entirely realized or completely finished, Amoc had more potential than it yielded but, even without the bells and whistles and pyrotechnics of an Al DiMeola, is still a rousing set of quality Hard JR/F.

Review by aneznam

5 stars For me, it is an excellent addition to your record shelf, if not essential.

It is a journy through various kinds of music tastes. The tones are very progressive and saxophone truly deepens the beauty of this album. It is hard to find an album that has its one fire and that touches your ears in an unique way. This album has quality music, if listened carefully it can give you waves never heared before, if not then definitely your attention. If You want me to compare it whit others, i would say that it is a fusion of Zappa and Miles D. Has a very avangarde sounds for that matter. I would recommend you not to skip this composition.

3 stars A Progressive/Jazz-Rock band from Denmark,Coma came from the city of Frederikshavn in the northern part of the country and were around since 1971.The main line-up consisted of five members on bass/drums/saxes/double guitars and their debut ''Financial tycoon'' was recorded at Plexus Studios in Ringsted with three guest musicians on vibraphone,trumpet and violin.The album was released in 1977 by Genlyd Grammofon.

A quite daring band not afraid to mix different sights and sounds,Coma travelled from Zappa-esque Jazz-Rock to Psychedelic Heavy Rock and back.The majority of the tracks falls into a Jazz-Rock, often meeting straight Jazz on the way,with huge and interesting sax solos by Jakob Mygind in the style of OUT OF FOCUS and technical playing by the rhythm section blended with obscure vocals with a humurous edge.But the story on ''Financial tycoon'' goers much further.The double guitar attack of Viggo Bertelsen and Flemming Friberg pushes the sound in Heavy Rock realms and offers good breaks between the sax-dominated pieces,which alternate from furious solos to melodic passages.Not much of abstract and disturbing improvisations in here,the tracks have an evident tight structure and,though not on the level of bands like DR. DOPO JAM or moreover SECRET OYSTER,they contain all the right ingredients to offer a pleasant experience.

Another lost and forgotten Jazz-Rock item from the 70's,''Financial tycoon'' is an all the way decent release of jazzy Progressive rock,recommended to fans of demanding musicianship.

Thanks to andy webb for the artist addition.
