Coachwhips were a three-piece noise/punk rock outfit from San Francisco, California formed in 2001. John Dwyer, formerly of Pink and Brown (Dwyer was Pink), was the guitarist/vocalist. John Harlow played the drums and Mary Ann McNamara played the keyboard/tambourine. In their 2nd incarnation, Val (tronic) played the keyboard/tambourine, and Matt Hartman played the drums. The Coachwhips are known for their stripped-down, unpolished garage rock and completely inaudible lyrics, similar to The Oblivians and The Gories. The Coachwhips played their last show in New York City in late 2005. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
