Coup De Grace  


Coup De Grace more or less appeared out of nowhere in 1990, with a rather varied debut album that generating some good reviews, with a major magazine predicting future stardom for the band. Despite this, they disappeared from public view for some time, though in fact they did manage to release a second album in Japan in 1995, likened by some to Thin Lizzy in style. Various lineups existed at least up to 1999 and possibly later, most likely relegated to sporadic local gigs.

Band leader James Mecherlie (going under the name Jimmy Coup) joined Andrew WK's band some time ago, but recently (December 2003) announced his departure from that group, and his desire to work again with several previous Coup De Grace members. Whether this signals the return of CDG, or the birth of a new band, is not clear.
