Biografia

The Comsat Angels were a post-punk band from Sheffield, England, active from 1978 to 1995.[1] Their music has been described as “abstract pop songs with spare instrumentation, many of which were bleak and filled with some form of heartache.”[2] They have been credited as being an influence to current post-punk revival bands, such as Editors and Interpol. [3] The Comsat Angels toured heavily in their native UK and in western Europe (especially in The Netherlands where they were moderately popular), but only did a couple of tours in the United States.[4] Their music has been extensively reissued and recompiled since 1995 by various record labels, but as of this date the band has not reformed.

Biography

Named after the J. G. Ballard short story The Comsat Angels,[5] the foursome’s core lineup (lasting 1978-1992) consisted of:

* Stephen Fellows - vocals, songwriting, lead guitar;
* Kevin Bacon - bass;
* Mik Glaisher - drums;
* Andy Peake - keyboards.

They debuted with an EP, released in 1979, named “Red Planet”.[6] This release attracted Polydor A&R man Frank Neilson and the band signed a three-album recording contract.[7] These three LPs, Waiting for a Miracle (1980), which included the single “Independence Day”, probably their best known song, Sleep No More (1981) and Fiction (1982), are regarded by some as their best, but only sold modestly.[8]
