"...John Wesley Coleman's had a Herculean morning. The hands of the clock have barely hit their northerly crest and the local musician's already dropped his baby off at daycare, delivered cases of kombucha to local shops, and landscaped three lawns..."
"...The local record store clerk points to a back wall, where there's an LP by the German metal band Helloween. John Wesley Coleman makes a beeline, Foster's tall boy in hand, thick tangle of curly black-and-gray hair adding a few inches to his frame..."

"...Fifty-five Austin acts take the SXSW plunge, among them the aforementioned Spoon, country queen Kelly Willis, garage poet John Wesley Coleman, young oi! crushers Breakout, and Ameripolitan outlaw Dale Watson. Other homegrown SXSWers include Akkina Adderley & the Vintage Playboys, Applied Pressure, Borzoi, Clouds Are Ghosts, Comforter, Dead Earth Politics, Ditch Witch, DJ D-Lite, Dylan C, Fast Forward Austin, Father Sky, Flash Boys, Foot Patrol, Friendly Savages, and Go DJKnowledge & the Trendsetters...."
"...(Also: Thu., 8:15pm, St. David's Historic Sanctuary.) – Doug Freeman John Wesley Coleman..."
"...The haphazard sketch of a cowboy riding a bull – or perhaps the pilgrim mounting a Great Dane – amongst the scribbled liner notes of John Wesley Coleman's facetiously titled Greatest Hits betrays his musical style: doodler. That uncanny knack for homey imperfection results in songs sans stress or pretense, and explains why the charismatic garage bard remains one of Austin's purest songwriters..."
"...Original location Liberty Lunch is no more, so they're shooting in front of Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop at the corner of Fourth and Nueces streets with a full, 35mm Panavision rig. Skloss runs the trio of actors – Ryan Taylor, Leslie Naugle, and, in the role made famous (and disturbing) by former Butthole Surfer Teresa Taylor, Austin musician/poet/writer/all-around Renaissance man John Wesley Coleman III – through the scene again and again, dollying up and back, up and back, until the sun is nearly lost behind the condos that now dwarf next-door club La Zona Rosa..."
"...Prolific solo rocker and Golden Boys guitarist John Wesley Coleman III has announced a cast and crew call for a film titled Morrissey Mexican Gangbanger. The feature-length film will chronicle the violent exploits of a Moz-obsessed gangster on Austin's Eastside..."
"...Inside just before, Churchwood’s slinky, Gothic blues made perfect sense in the darkened alcove usually occupied by a pool table. Rogue Golden Boy John Wesley Coleman’s loose crew of rock dudes and dudettes settled in like electric lounge lizards...."
"...She's looking appropriately Eastern European: a head wrap and gigantic old-lady sunglasses. Later tonight, she'll let her hair down onstage at Holy Mountain, banging the hell out of her drum kit behind local garage great John Wesley Coleman...."
"...John Wesley Coleman dropped by my house last week to deliver his latest vinyl, Trans Am Summer Blues, which features impressive guitar work from Flesh Lights’ Maxwell Vandever. Coleman compared playing guitar with Max to an old boxer trading punches with a fresh young fighter..."

"...I didn't want to be like them." OBN III's proved the polar opposite at Red 7 on Thursday for Chaos in Tejas, shimmying through feral proto-punk gems as the quintet's dual guitar attack stoked Neeley testifying like a Southern Pentecostal preacher with the shake appeal of Iggy Pop and a Pete Townshend complex. He records full-band demos by playing every instrument himself, fitting given his prolific work as a local producer (for the Strange Boys and John Wesley Coleman III) and drummer for contemporaries A Giant Dog, not to mention his mainstay gig as guitarist/singer for Denton power-pop trio Bad Sports..."
