"Truly's 'Fast Stories... from Kid Coma' #3 Top 10 Underrated Alternative Rock Albums of the 90's" - ALTERNATIVENATION.NET 2014

SEATTLE'S Heavy-pop-psych innovators & former Capitol and Sub Pop artists are taking a break from working on a new album to embark on a tour of the USA exactly twenty years after releasing their long winding epic, the widely critically acclaimed double length album 'Fast Stories... from Kid Coma'. Truly includes the original Soundgarden bass player and founder Hiro Yamamoto, Screaming Trees founding drummer Mark Pickerel and features songwriter, guitarist, singer Robert Roth (nearly Nirvana's second guitarist, Jim Carroll collaborator, also played on Built to Spills, 'Perfect from Now On'...).

Coinciding with these tour dates is a new single "Know One Remembers the Game" that will be released along with a new "Wheels On Fire/No One Remembers The Game" " 7" on Flotation Records. This August, 2015' Sony/Legacy will release the 'Singles Soundtrack Expanded Reissue'. Finally included will be Truly's "Heart and Lungs" from their Sub Pop debut which was always one of Cameron Crowe's favorite songs in the film.

"The movie and soundtrack are like snapshots of the city and the time and the feeling of promise in the air. I would put a few more songs on, and we finally did recently. Truly's "Heart and Lungs" is one of the songs that belonged. That song should have made the starting team." - Cameron Crowe, VANITY FAIR 6/2015

In the early 90's, Truly released two E.P.s on Sub Pop, had a top-ten hit in Seattle with "Married in the Playground" and played the side stage at Lollapalooza two years in a row. They were soon picked up by Capitol Records in a rare window of time between 'In Utero' and Nirvana's subsequent untimely ending where the revolution was on and Truly were being encouraged by Capitol to not be concerned with singles, radio and MTV, but to push the envelope and carve out their own nitch as an "album band". Perhaps in a similar context to the way Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and the Who were expanding past the three minute single along side the emergence of F.M. radio. Truly were essentially allowed to explore, experiment and make whatever kind of music their muse suggested with very little interference from the label.

"Truly's carefully constructed pillar of sound is founded on elements from three decades of drug-induced pop darkness... a beguiling concoction, a sound characterized not only by atmospherics, but genuinely clever song-craft." - CMJ

Jesse Rosenthal- guitar/vocals, Sam Fletcher- bass, Julia Arria- drums
-from Oakland, CA

-Bad jokes, cheap whiskey, and screaming guitar solos are the main ingredients for this hard-rocking Oakland trio, Dyno. Frontman Jesse Rosenthal sings the catchy hooks and lead guitar while Sam Fletcher (bass) and Julia Arria (drums) drive the headbanging rhythm. With lyrics focusing on love and the wonder of nature written over bluesy rock and roll this band may conjure up images of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin or The Black Keys but make no mistake: this is all original music.
