a group intended to gather the listeners of psych-folk legend Comus.

Despite existing only for a brief period during the early 70s and being largely obscure throughout that period, it's undoubted that Comus was one of the most interesting bands to emerge from the scene.
It could be said that they're a far more deranged and experimental version of Jethro Tull, although to say this wouldn't quite do them justice. Their songs often go from beautiful mellow passages to strange, tribal chanting, their lyrics often being brutal and graphic (just look at "Drip Drip" from their debut album!).

The band's seminal 1971 debut album “First Utterance” featured a line-up of Roger Wootton (who also wrote most of the material) on guitar and vocals, Andy Hellaby on bass, Colin Pearson on violin and viola, Bobbie Watson on vocals and percussion, Rob Young on flute and oboe, and Glen Goring also contributing guitar work. After this, the band went on a brief hiatus before returning with the even less known 1974 sophomore effort “To Keep From Crying”. Only Hellaby, Wootton and Watson returned from the original line-up, and despite adding people like Lindsay Cooper of Henry Cow and Didier Malherbe of Gong on bassoon and saxophone respectively, the second album failed to live up to the first and marked the end of Comus, leaving the band to fade away into the depths of obscurity.

Early 2008 the band performed once again at the 21st Anniversary Melloboat festival [eventpage], a 48 hours cruise from Stockholm to Helsinki and back.

    Bright the sunlight summer day Comus wakes he starts to play Virgin fair smiles so sweet Comus' heart begins to beat Rise up Comus sing your song bewitch the maiden the day is long Cast your spell sweet music crack her virtuous shell Enchanted damsel curious ear Comus music dispel all fear Dainty feet they skip so light Comus laughs soon comes the night
