Sam Coffey & The Iron Lungs: Get rid of that bitch!

Who are you?

I’m Sam Coffey and The Iron Lungs aren’t here right now.

Who are you wearing?

A shirt from Old Navy and my Dad’s old shorts.

How much coffee is too much coffee?

If you’re tapping your leg like Larry Craig in a men’s room stall.

What do you take in your coffee?

Two cream, two sugar.

What did that bitch do?

She fucked with my shit? Some people think that song is sexist and demeaning. PC Dicks.

Do you feel it too?

I feel it all, honey.

Favorite Canadian Band?

That’s a hard question, but Demon’s Claws (Montreal), Sonic Avenues (Montreal), First Base (Toronto), Teledrome (Calgary), and Needles//Pins (Vancouver) all immediately come to mind.

No. No, wait. Bloodshot Bill. He’s my daddy. When he comes around to New York again, see him.

Best way to keep up is to just keep an eye on what bands Hosehead Records is releasing. Every single band they’ve put a tape or record out for just slays.

What is your fascination with iron lungs?

I don’t know, I don’t really have one. We just decided to call the band that when I first met them and asked if they smoked weed. And just to clarify, Bloodshot Bill isn’t actually my dad. That’s just rock n’ roll jargin. This is actually my dad. image

First thing you’ll do when you get to New York?

Buy some cheap beer and walk around. Probably listen to “Shook Ones”.

Message for the kids?

Get with every girl you can get with in high school, even the poor ones.
