I've been listening to Coaltar for like 4 years now, and I can honestly say they're my favourite band, it is through them that I discovered shoegaze for instance. Though I've recently felt that I overlistened a bit, it feels really nice to get back to them from time to time. I've been checking out the COTD FAN site a lot over the years as well, it's amazing!
My first song was Dead by Dawn and it quickly spread from there, haha. I think almost everything Coaltar put out is great but my favourite albums would be newave and SUBMERGE. My favourite songs are Cell, blink, SARAH III, entreaty, CHARMING SISTER KISS ME DEAD, NO THANK YOU and Tim (pleasure→despair). Oh and the long version of Receive Assimilation, of course lol.
