Sam Coffey & The Iron Lungs are a power pop band from Toronto. Formed by Coffey, a former mechanic’s apprentice from Kitchener, Ontario, with it’s members collected from various Ontario small towns, they rapidly ingratiated themselves with Toronto’s punk scene.
Their pizza of the month reflects their fourthcoming album, Real One, which is the latest full-length record from Toronto outfit. It is a work of loving, earnest maximalism. It’s proportions are ambitious and grand: blown-out gang vocals, sweeping piano, shimmering saxophone, romantic string arrangements, and thunderous guitars reign across 11 tracks. It’s a labour of love, but also of commitment, community, belief and progress.
Along with his band mates Dave Tyson (keys), Liam Doyle (lead guitar), Joel “French” Desbois (rhythm guitar), Richard Stanley (bass) and Connor Glen (drums), Coffey has in effect created a record that could be staged on Broadway and now a pizza that could be staged on Mount Olympia.
