Welcome to The all new coals site

The Coals were born of a desire to play all those great rock songs you’d love to hear a band play live in a club. Based in Nottingham their power pop set currently includes tunes by Blur, The Who, Feeder, Black keys, REM, T-Rex, The Undertones, Bowie, Stereophonic's, The Buzz Cocks, Kings of leon and Jimi of Hendrix. The only rule is it must be a great tune! Our boys have been beavering away working on their new set ready for 2017. So what can we expect from Nottingham's most rehearsed band? Well, a lot of the old favorites are there including "Teenage dirt bag" and Bowie's "The man who sold the world" and of course TREX's "20th Century boy". New material includes Blurs "Beetle Bum" and "Another Girl, Another Planet" by the Only Ones. Theres a couple of numbers by the Black Keys too, "Lonely Boy" and "Have Love , Will Travel" . All in all a marvelous evening of entertainment. The 2017 tour start at JP's birthday party in January.

About Us

Furious Teamwork

Yay, The Coals. What can be said about them that hasn't already used as an answer in the White Horse quiz. We caught up with them recently and asked them about their plans for the new year. "2017 is going to be a year for us" said Blue. "I'm pretty sure it's going to start in January, warm up around July and it should pretty much be over by the end of December" Jp agreed via his usually selection of non sequiturs. Yes, he is a keen gardener. Gaz was unavailable for comment after spending his settee budget on yet another drum kit.
