Formed in 1979, Claude Coma & the IVs included Claude Christensen (vocals,guitar), John Gunderson (bass), Don Story (guitar), David Davenport (keys), and Terry Micalizio (drums). After releasing one self-titled record, they split in the early 1980s.

The band played mean and economical poprock behind Coma’s weirdness: “I’m sick of the bus/I can’t take it no more/Let’s kill these people/What are they good for?”

Gunderson, Micalizio, and Story later founded the Ravens.
