The Coral – The Coral (LP)

2002 Limited Edition U.K. Pressing

Back in 2002, while most kids in the U.S. were going crazy for The Strokes, there were two bands making serious waves in the U.K.: Kings of Leon and The Coral. The former went on to finally become somewhat embraced by their home country, after the release of their sophomore album, but the latter – they were homegrown kids from Merseyside who never would quite break through in the States. It’s a damn shame too, because the Psychedelic/Indie Rock music that The Coral debuted with really was, and still is, something to behold. They were hailed by the likes of Oasis and Morrissey, for what it’s worth, and would eventually be followed by label-mates, The Zutons, and some kids who went by the name of Arctic Monkeys.
