No one does it like the West Bay Coalition, not then and certainly not now. I only saw GO LIKE THIS once - it was towards the end of their run and I had just moved back to the Bay, and it was a good reminder that it was good to be back. To watch Kindred and Frank riff off of each other was truly something special, and these songs come off like a culmination (and evolution? a progression?) of (or from?) the bands that came before them. Song construction is just way fukkn out there, and it admittedly takes a listens to really let tracks like "Dan Hogan" really sink in....but when they do? PLUTOCRACY with organs, soundtrack vibes, early aughts heavy alt and bizarro prog...fukk dude. It works, and no one does it like the West Bay Coalition...that's it.
