Earlier this week it transpired that Coal Chamber were reforming to play some reunion shows. It turns out Hugh Platt has an interesting angle on why this is so much bullsh*t.
Back before Thrash Hits existed, I sometimes moonlighted as an occasional crew member for a low-budget (and now defunct) music TV channel. I mainly helped out on location shoots – generally as a grip, occasionally as a soundman, and more often than not just as a general fixer. Back in late 2007, when DevilDriver were headlining the Islington Academy, we rolled up a few hours before the doors opened, ostensibly to shoot a few interview pieces with Dez Fafara, which is how the issue of Coal Chamber came up.
