Description

Hardcore Mojo plays American indie speed blues rock — intense music steeped in the tradition of no bulls**t. A Hardcore Mojo show evokes the gods of Mojo in a marathon of dancing, bass slapping, speed blues riffs, roaring vocals, and hard hitting drums.

Front man Robroy Mountjoy, originally from Kansas City, moved to New York City in 2005, and soon met Kevin Fish, a guitarist steeped in blues and classic rock riffs that had been in a coma for nearly a decade. Robroy mentioned that he had been playing some gigs in Manhattan so, inspired to play again; they got together one night to jam. That first night, Robroy quickly sat his guitar down to focus on his unique rock vocal style. His vocals melded in with Fish’s blistering classic riffs and the two soon realized there was a connection not to be denied.

Wet Coma was started in late 2006 by Lefty (guitars) and Andy Smith (vocals), who later joined forces with bassist Dustin Smith and drummer Sean Pokress. Weathering the music scene in the bars of New York City, they have honed a combustive sound reminiscent of 1970’s riff-based hard rock. Blistering guitar, swankily anchored bass lines, cataclysmic drums and lyrically taut shotgun vocals combine to energize the listener. Wet Coma is forging a strong following throughout the New York area and region. They recently completed their debut album which was mastered at the legendary Sterling Sound Studios in Manhattan. Wet Coma has also had its music featured in two films, a compilation CD for the book Nikki Sixx:An Education in Rebellion and an off-Broadway play. Their sole mission is to bring real rock & roll back to the masses!
