This album is due for release in April. The great thing about this, is that it will give a second opportunity for people to get access to the Comsat Angels finest hour. Never a commercial record but who cares? This is a record that is very much in the Unknown Pleasures genre in its sounds and existential focus. The outstanding opening track Eye Dance with its guitar power chords and psychedelic chord interplay backed by an aggressive drum pattern makes it such a wonderful cathartic experience. Gone proves that putting the drums high up in the mix can produce a wonderful record. This reminds me of the Gang of Four in how they drift in and out with their instrumentation and rejecting all the familiar predictable constructs of composition. But lets face it the Comsat Angels were pioneers in their own right. They never succumbed to the bland, predictable and throw away pop of the 80's. Sleep No more can still be played and still has its essence intact. We can see their influence in both the Bloc Party and Interpol. Mik Glaisher's drumming is extremely prominent throughout the record giving the record its strong foundations which allowed Steve Fellows, Andy Peake and Kevin Bacon to improvise without concern about the backbone of the sound. Listen to this, if you old you will find out just what you have been missing! If your young you have just found your Holy Grail!! Both ways just thank you lucky stars you got here in the END!!

This album is fabulous; from the first few intro drum beats you just know that you are in for a treat. It's one of those albums that does not have a single bad track, or even one that seems out of place; the whole thing is paced to perfection and recorded beautifully. The drummer Mik Glaisher is no Jaki Leibezeit - but don't let that put you off, this is an extraordinary performance which the unusual recording technique makes the most of. The stand-out track, for me at least, is Goat of the West, the nearest the Angels get to an all-out thrash - it must have been great in concert!

Like Can's "Soundtracks", Magazine's "Play" or Martha and the Muffin's "This is the Ice Age" this is a seriously underrated album - buy it now!

From the ominous opening chords to the final drumbeats, this dark masterpiece delivers and has stood the test of time. Difficult to believe that it was recorded in the early 80s as it still sounds compelling and contemporary. The influence on the likes of The Editors and Interpol is undoubted but the Comsat Angels surely deserve to be more than a cult band fondly remembered by some and forgotten by too many. This album contains one of my desert island discs, "Our Secret", but in truth there is not a bad track. Strangely, when I saw The Angels in a rare gig in Sheffield recently they only played one track from this album, seen by many as their crowning achievement, and that the admittedly darkly impressive "Be Brave". Perhaps this album is so intense, so oppressive, in atmosphere and production that it does not lend itself to the superficial pleasures of a live concert, where it is too easy to slip into all surface, no feeling mode when a band is trying to cater for the typical concert-goer who "wants a good time". A good time for all is certainly not to be had on this album because brilliant as it is it is certainly not easy listening in any sense of the word. The sound is huge, powerful, in fact over-powering as the drum sound is large, perhaps a little too large as it tends to drown out Steve's superb vocals at times. The lyrical subject matter is all despair and paranoia but with chinks of light showing through (the afore-mentioned, almost uplifting, anthemic "Our Secret")and reveals its disbelief at the election of Reagan as president and, with stunning aural story-telling, the true story of a fatally-botched mission to save American hostages called "Dark Parade".Read more ›

As a callow youth of 16 I went to see this band in McGonagles of a Sunday afternoon in Dublin, 1981. They had just been tipped along with U2 and the Bunnymen as the next hot thing. They blew me away with this stuff. there is a clarity and intensity of melody that I keep coming back to. The rhythmn section could never be bettered. It is probably one of the few post-punk concept albums around that work
