Coach - The Family Tree

Imagine a huge storage building, it's gleaming concrete and steel corridors the picture of modern arrangement. The smell is pungently sterile and the security is airtight. Catch the cavernous lift to the fourth floor and follow the curious echoes of what may, or may not be music until you see, down the back of an endless white and blue corridor, a tall man in close-fitting black jeans playing a double bass. That'd be Jonathan Burgess of Coach. He has to play out in the hall as guitarist Abe Kunin and drummer Todd Beeby take up all the space in the 3x3 metre storage unit.
