Captain Coma were from Germany and played a heavy kind of psychobilly with electric bass and raspy voice which could sometimes remind of the Meteors but were far to have the genius of Fenech’s brainchild.

They could have done one average mini lp for they have a couple of not so bad self penned songs like “Western landler” or “Night of Terror”. Instead of that they filled the album with poorly written material and uninspired and unoriginal covers (Frenzy, These Boots Are Made For Walkin’, Baby Let’s Play House, Jailhouse Rock) that sound like a parody of rockabilly played by a drunken punk band (they turned “16 Tons” into… “16 Pints”). Played at the same pace, in the same key, with the same sound and always the same feedback to start the songs, “Thirst” soon turns to be very monotonous.
