The Coma Savants
It all started in the fall of 2001...
Your Mom SRO had been working on what would have been their third album when the band decided to call it quits. Very quickly, a new concept came forward and The Coma Savants came into being.
The first order of business was to head to Broken Horsey Studio with Ed Reardon and Jenny Hanson. Over the course of 5 days, The Savants recorded all the basic tracks for what would become their debut, Coma Savant.
The album, released on Uvulittle Records in April of 2002, showcases the group's irrepressible creativity and liberal interpretation of "music" + "performance."
The group played in the mid-west playing many 3-day weekend roadtrips and one 11 date tour.
They released an enhanced CD, Ã‡, in late 2003 which features music videos, a re-mix of an unreleased song and songs from their debut and one of Stephanie Rearick's solo albums.
They broke up in 2005.
