From a site called RCRD LBL:
"If the carnival had a carousel that had vibrating rockets instead of bobbing ponies, Rumplemintz and PBR instead of Icees and roller coasters that rattled more than the Cyclone in a hurricane the music wouldn't just be a pipe organ wheezing calliope music, it'd be the fucked up, off the rails, fast as you can pumping of CoCoComa. Start with the guitar/drum spazzing of Bill and Lisa Roe, whirl in a mad dash of Mike Fitzpatrick's organ anchor, coat with Bill's shredding lead vocals and sprinkle with the "whoah-oh-oh"s and group shouting that only comes with the unabashed embracing of being sweaty and dirty for the sake of a good time and you've got CoCoComa. Today we've got "(Tryin' to) Read My Mind" from their S/T debut release on Goner Records and "Premonition" from the Shit Sandwich limited run 7" EP. Chicago's World's Fair in 1893 may have the distinction of birthing one of America's first serial killers, but the Chicago-based CoCoComa carnival will cause a bigger ruckus than Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show."
