1991 Band - The Coles... Need to find their album!

Post by Jett » Thu Apr 08, 2010 10:25 am



After much searching, over many years, I finally found the name of the band I was looking for... now comes the hard part... finding their old album.

If you don't remember The Coles, then you may remember the 1991 cfny Modern Music Search album. They had track #4: Crashing Down.

Questions:
1. Any idea where to source their album released at about the same year? If memory serves, it was an Indie release, so I may be waaay out of luck.
2. Did you have the album? What I really need from it is their cover of "Jessie's Girl"... was loud and thrashy. Nice!
3. Who were the members? Pretty sure they were local... maybe I can track them down?
4. Do you know if they evolved into a new band?


Any leads at all would be great.

The Coles were most notably ex cfny jock Brother Bill (AKA Neil Morrison)'s band in the late 80's/early 90's. Brampton band. I have an old 'debut single' from 1989 on cassette of 'No Idea' and "Another Wasted Summer". Wish I could rip and post it but have no means at the moment. It is a very independent cassette...Songs taped over on old Jesus & Mary Chain Album!
Liner notes say Coles are;
Colin Avey
Mark Robinson
Sean Michael Terrell
T.C. Thrillhammer
"Billy" Neil Morrison (Vocals)
Maybe gone, but The Spirit lives on...

Well -- 3 years later and still looking...

Any new info on the Coles? Brother Bill was a dead end for me.. turns out he left the band before the album was made.

Any other pointers?

Thanks!

Hi Jett

I am guitarist from Marvelous Beauhunks and played many shows with Coles back in the day. Their bassist Rich went on after to form a couple other bands and i believe is still playing. I think my drummer still has copy of their release with Jessie's Girl.....will check and let you know.

dont give up hope yet....

Rich Gaskin's (former bassist of the coles) newest project is Teenage X if you wanna follow up with him directly.

Hi there,

My name is Darren and I sang on the Jessie's Girl cover. The band then was me, Sean Michael Turrell on Drums (now a Juno winning video director), Mark Robinson on Guitar and Rich Gaskin on bass.

Rich went on to play with Faceplant and Teenage x and I played with Vince and Dee from Sour Landslide in a band called the Benvereens (we released 2 CDs together before I left).

Hop this helps.
