If the pile of angry fan me is any indicator (and I know it isn't, because I just made that up) our legion of devoted, yet hygenically-challenged fans have been chomping at the proverbial bit (not enough horse-related metaphors out there) for this album. Well, put your money where your mouth is and BUY it, already! You'd be a fool to trust us, but you know you can trust these legitimate retailers! It's not a bad acid trip, it's Full Contact BINGO™!
Dig it, folks! A solo album by Nately is done and retail ready (with guest spots by none other than Zippy and Matty-O) AND as if that weren't enough to satiate your insanity-bone, the Coal Bin Bros. have sent the ridiculously expansive FULL CONTACT BINGO™ off to the remastering plant! Ye gods! Check the relevant links at the top of yo' page here to get the straight scoop!
I'm pleased to report that THE Denny Laine is one swell bloke who likes the name of the band, digs the vibe, and promises to check out the CDs we threw his way. Huzzah! Sorry for the rubbish quality of the photo, but the point remains!
Nately and Zippy aka 2/3rds of the Coal Bin Bros. are off to Ohio today to see former member of the Moody Blues, Wings, and solo star in his own right, Denny Laine. Mr. Laine has generously offered to "check out" the band and even said he likes the name. So, we are going to hand-deliver copies of our first two albums to him (Barred For Life, Funeral Album) and see what happens. If he ditches us this message will be gone before the day is out. On that note, since we gotta go, we gotta GO NOW!!! Get it?
Fear not folks, your favorite comedic-progressive-folk-rock trio is not falling to pieces! Due to his lack of a wife and real job Nately has decided to slap a solo album together, bringing you even more stupidity, wacky songs, mellotron madness, crushing cynnicism, and kazoos! WOO!!! Dig the work in progress on the RPM Challenge Jukebox page and stay tuned for a slightly more professional final copy!
Hold on to your colostomy bags, folks! The Coal Bin Bros. are back with the wacky video to end all wacky videos! Watch in awe as octogenarians go ape at the local bingo hall! Watch it on our VIDEOS page, or pop on over to our Youtube page!

The gift boutique formerly known as The Emporeum on Walnut Street in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania, has relocated across the street and is simply renamed DAN, which is a reflection of its enduring proprietor, Dan DeSantis.
Dan has "set up shop," and his official grand opening will be on the 27th. Coordinating with his gothic decor will be a stack of the newest Coal Bin Bros. release, The Funeral Album, one of the exclusives you'll find on sale at this small, but tre chic outlet. The band members will be present for a "meet the artist" affair whenever they decide to show up, at which point Dan's business will surely plummit.
The Funeral Album
This is a true album, intended to be heard from start to finish without interruption. It should be available in most of the outlets where you have found Barred For Life: iTunes, CDBaby, DAN, etc. Early 70's bluesy rock permeates much of this creep-fest, released just in time for the plague.
Dan DeSantis' thoughts after hearing a rough-cut: "If I had to describe it one word to someone, I'd say, 'Tommy.' This is very gothic..."
