Editors’ Notes

With swagger and snarl, Girl In a Coma turn their sophomore album Trio B.C. into an affirmation of classic punk virtues. Not that this San Antonio-based combo insists on genre purity — there are bursts of twanging rockabilly (“B.B.”) and early ‘60s Latino rock (“Ven Cerca”) to leaven the obvious ‘70s and ‘80s influences. Lead singer/guitarist Nina Diaz pitches her vocals between a wail and a growl, and with sister Phanie on drums and Jenn Alva on bass, she bears down hard on spiky, angst-ridden rockers like “Baby Boy,” “Pleasure and Pain” and “Empty Promise.” The Coma gang gets frisky on the Jam-like “In the Day,” and waltzes with a rough-edged tenderness on “Vino.” Most surprising are the gentler moments, especially “El Monte,” a vision of domestic happiness accented with slide guitar and trumpet. Joan Jett (co-owner of the group’s label) makes a vocal appearance on “Joanie In the City,” a ferocious punk-feminist anthem. Trio B.C. displays a focus and consistency that far more experienced bands might envy.

Customer Reviews

Warning*** Listening to this album is dangerous!

Wikipedia: The term "addiction" is used in many contexts to describe an obsession, compulsion, or excessive psychological dependence, such as: drug addiction (e.g. alcoholism), video game addiction, crime, money, work addiction, compulsive overeating, problem gambling, computer addiction,nicotine addiction, pornography addiction, plastic surgery addiction, etc. I would add 'listening to Girl in a Coma's Trio BC" to that list. Once you start listening to it, you won't be able to stop. You won't be able to get the songs out of your head. You may stop listening to other music. You may stop eating. I don't know, addiction affects different people in different ways. But what a way to go...

GIAC Lover!!!

I was very fortunate to see these young ladies play live in south Texas. They are awesome Live! Nina's voice is raw and compelling. I recommend both albums. They are so sweet and humble. Plus, they love their fans. And I love their version of "Ven Cerca" ah, beautiful. I can't stop listening to it. jeejee Love them!!!

Showing Maturity

Girl in Coma's second effort not only avoids the dreaded sophomore slump but is an important sign that this band will continue to excite those of us outside of San Antonio lucky enough to "discover" them. "Trio B.C." goes off in a few different directions than its predecessor "Both Before I'm Gone," in terms of its musical style. As a result the album does not feel as coherent but I enjoy the fact the band is maturing. Let me remark to new listeners to avoid the media type casting of the band, due to various issues I won't go into here. Talent is talent and Girl in a Coma has it.

Biography

Naming themselves in homage of the Smiths' song "Girlfriend in a Coma," Girl in a Coma started in San Antonio, TX, with bassist Jenn Alva and drummer Phanie Diaz, two best friends who bonded thanks to a shared interest in Nirvana and the Smiths. The duo endured several failed experiments in both band lineups and musical styles before discovering that Nina Diaz, Phanie's younger sister, possessed talent as a singer, guitarist, and songwriter. Though Nina was only 12 when she performed her first song...
