Sam Coomes will release his first ever solo album Bugger Me on August 19th. Coomes is probably best known as half of the long running underground pop duo Quasi, the other half being Janet Weiss, herself better known as the drummer for Sleater-Kinney.

Alongside Weiss, Quasi have released nine albums over the last two decades and toured all over the world. Concurrently, Sam Coomes has played and recorded with the likes of Built to Spill, Elliott Smith and Jandek, worked as a producer and scored numerous soundtracks for underground films and art installations. In short, he is not a newcomer to the scene.
Saqqara Mastabas
Below is the musical group/outfit/band so-called bio written at the behest of the record company (which is so-called (believe it or not) "Joyful Noise"). The The band/outfit/group is called "SAQQARA MASTABAS" (not obligatory all-caps (not word order odd obligatory either(/or))), just like this so-called website. The record company censored the fourth paragraph: no surprise. Those sorts always censor The Fourth Paragraph.

Somehow, condemned to the underworld/whateverworld, they sustained the light for millennia/millennials. Keeping their Ka-Ba intact and entire they always knew the Power and the Pleasure of the Sun God/Some Guy would grant (though they never fill out the forms) them so-called Eternal Creativity (i.e., QQreativity) if they could just complete the journey and Rise Above! Following their righteous path, they ignited Fiery Furnaces (FEE-ery Fur-Nace-es-EH) and stumbled the inner steps of the Sebadjoser pyramid to finally reach the Night Light!

These two ancient souls/old people from the Under Earth have sublated their fate and become Children/Mature Students of the Upper Light—Hermopolis Magna became Matthew Friedberger and Waan'Ubyee Shemayet became Bob D'Amico, slip sliding (Paul Simon's great) hither and thither in both time and tense. They are now (and then) proud makers of Joyful Noise (insert plug here) made possible by their Outlet to Eternity—the SAQQARA MASTABAS.

The album is called Libras because the music is scaly. Like Serpent Scales? Yes, Like Serpent Scales on social media! The music stays true to the various ancient serpent scales and runs them up and down the half-step pyramids: half-step Pyramid Vibrations, i.e. cool tunes, i.e. QQool tunes. It thinks! The album is called Libras because the music is well-balanced. Or not well balanced: whichever is better at the given moment as made manifest by the Movement of the Moon, i.e. the Serpent in the Sky. We hear the Serpent in the Sky. We heart the Serpent in the Sky! By the way, the Hieroglyph for "Libras" is a Couple of Zebras.

Libras was recorded in 2013 according to the Incorrect Calendar: we number our days by means of Moon Mathematics, as you might guess: in other words, Serpent Scales: for further information, listen to the tracks. The mighty train tracks on aka A Couple of Zebras: this is the train to Babylon says the Long Island Railroad! Tomb Times are Arriving—on Track 6! So Libras was made in so-called '2013' in the middle of Paris and the bottom of Brooklyn. Obviously then, it was made under the influence of the Nubian Nantiquities (remember your Iiaison) languishing in the Louvre. But more than that: it was obviously made under the influence of Atlantis which as everybody knows is sunk in the sea less than 1 tiny nautical mile from the terminus of Bay 13th St. and the Belt Parkway! Yes: that's exactly where it is. Didn't you know? The Magnetic Moon Mathematics Music of Old Dynasty Atlantis, if not quite reborn, has at least Crocodile-d to the surface, eyes peeping out, nostrils sucking up—as it were: where? There: on the flood formed island of Libras by Saqqara Mastabas. Hail Atlantis!

So SM invites you, entreats you, begs you for goodness sake to stay on the south side of your soul: promenade down Atlantis Avenue listening to Libras [the sign of a couple of zebras].
