1995 Grunge Classic on Double LP!
Featuring Members of Screaming Trees & Soundgarden!
First Time on Vinyl in Nearly 30 Years!

Fast Stories...From Kid Coma is the debut studio album by the American rock band Truly, originally released in 1995. The album was put out by Capitol Records' Revolution imprint, while the vinyl edition was handled by Sub Pop. And now it is being reissued by Bang! Records.

Fast Stories...From Kid Coma is loosely a concept album about a comatose kid "reliving a past summer of grandeur." Trouser Press wrote: "Heavy but never bludgeoning, melodic but never cheesy, excessive but never ridiculous, Fast Stories is an extended trip into several of rock's outer dimensions." Loudwire ranked the album at twenty-sixth in their list of "The 30 Best Grunge Albums of All Time." Kerrang! wrote that Fast Stories...From Kid Coma "remains a genuinely vital album, and quite possibly the [grunge] genre's swan song." Louder Sound named the album in their list of "10 obscure but absolutely essential grunge albums." MTV called it "the great psychedelic hard rock rush of the year." Members of the band: Robert Roth (vocals, guitar), Hiro Yamamoto (bass guitar, member of Soundgarden), Mark Pickerel (drums, member of Screaming Trees).

Pieced together in a continuous stream of music (à la Sgt. Pepper's,) the 13 tracks on Truly's first full-length release comprise a loosely based concept album filled with overdriven guitar and the soothing yet slightly menacing voice of singer Robert Roth. Songs like 'Blue Flame Ford' and 'Blue Lights' further the swirling, psychedelic sound present on the group's early Sub Pop EPs, but show an even more refined sense of songwriting and arranging.
