CREATURE COMFORT

Recently described by Badly Drawn Boy as "one of the best live bands I've seen - brilliant energy and great, interesting songs", and with Louder Than War saying that The Creature Comfort should be "held in the same high esteem as Joy Division, Oasis and Stone Roses", The Creature Comfort are a legendary lost Manchester band whose outsider post-punk music inhabits a sonic space somewhere between Pixies, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Taken under the wings of The Stone Roses as the next big thing, they gained a large underground following in the region. Then, on the cusp of joining the pantheon of break-through acts like Oasis and Elbow, the band were suddenly forced to disband.

Now rebooted and revamped, The Creature Comfort have re-emerged from their enforced hibernation with this, their very long-awaited debut album, featuring the single Sauce.

The Creature Comfort

Sally Sucks

    The Creature Comfort is a legendary lost Manchester band.

    Once under the management of Gareth Evans (The Stone Roses) with a residency at Manchester’s iconic rock venue The International, (sharing the stage with Gun Club, Mudhoney, Suicidal Tendencies, Cornershop, American Music Club), The Creature Comfort’s riotous live performances and frontman Ben Le Jeune’s lyrical surrealism led the way to a large, local underground following. Then, on the cusp of joining the pantheon of big-time Mancunian acts like Oasis and Elbow, the band were forced to split up due to personal circumstances.

    Now after the long unplanned hiatus, founder and frontman Ben Le Jeune has resurrected The Creature Comfort, writing and recording a brand new album and enrolling the help of fellow musicians (Steve Jones – guitar, Chris Livesey – bass, Christian Payne – drums) for The Creature Comfort’s first live dates of the millennium.

    An essential yet still-secret part of the city’s musical heritage, The Creature Comfort’s outsider post-punk music inhabits a sonic space somewhere between Pixies, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

    ‘Sally Sucks’ is the first single taken from The Creature Comfort’s very long-awaited debut (following in September). A snarling, pounding, almost frenzied 2.25 mins of unadulterated old-school pop-punk. On the b-side is ‘Windowpane’, showcasing Le Jeune’s observational lyrical wit in a dark ode to Manchester. The cover artwork features a skater from the Manchester Roller Derby team.
