The Cogs (1994-2000) were from New York City and were made up of five diverse individuals who together make some of the best noises I’ve ever heard.
They released four 7″ singles on Bear records in the US in the mid to late 90’s and then we received a demo of 13 songs, we loved it and soon after Viva! was released.
We also did a 7″ of ‘no Expectations’ a totally breathtakingly great single which was pretty much ignored at the time.
Sounding like a cross between The Muffs and The Pixies they were a great band.
They did record a second full length album which, as far as we know never saw the light of day.
