Invincible Vacuum Cleaner Co

Website / Facebook / Bandcamp

Founded in 2017 by Cabinet Maker, Composer and Histrionic Poet Gren Coffee, Invincible Vacuum Cleaner Co took shape when Vern McElroy brought his experience and musical sparkle to a series of early recordings, whereupon a drummer was required, and a bass player to play live and, well, you know how THAT goes… Informed by a wide bandwidth (sorry) of styles and genres, from 70’s Rock to British Folk to Contemporary Classical music, IVCC now brings the driving and exhilarating drums of Genesis Fermin who could probably rip any of us in half but who chooses love and music instead. Gren’s (and increasingly, Vern’s) lyrics reflect experiences and situations that only could have been conceived in middle age, after years of weathering the intricate project of being human. Whatever may be going on in the world, we must try not to forget that we all have gifts to bring, that even our mistakes can be made into treasures, after we peel the old burger wrappers off them.
