THE COMET IS COMING

"Prophecy" is your first taste of the impending apocalypse. Fear not, Danalogue The Conqueror (synthesiser), Betamax Killer (drums) and King Shabaka (saxophone) are here to spread light and joy and fire, for they are The Leaf Label’s new saviours.

These three planets aligned in 2013, having between them played with bands including Melt Yourself Down, Polar Bear, Soccer96 and Sons Of Kemet.
"Prophecy" is five tracks of freewheeling psychedelia and honking jazz punk mayhem. Here is the universe in a microcosm; the life-force distilled down to its raw essence: sex and dancing. Sub-bass, slamming analogue, unhinged sax breaks. The rhythm of life.


STAFF COMMENTS

Millie says: Originally released in 2015 and scarcely seen since, this is the debut 12" from trailblazing London jazz-punks The Comet Is Coming. Buy on sight alert!

On Trust In The Life Force Of The Deep Mystery, the Mercury Music Prize-shortlisted futurist jazz voyagers The Comet Is Coming are making music for these crisis times of chaos and mass meltdown. The title of the album, the band say, concerns “finding meaning in that which you cannot grasp”, it considers “truth in the existence of a primordial energy”. It asks “What does it mean to be human? The music on the trio’s second record, out on impulse! in March 2019, fluctuates between pulsating, danceable, electronic groove-centric pieces and quieter, melodic jazz-infused compositions.

The Comet Is Coming are: Danalogue (keyboards/electronics), Betamax (drums) and King Shabaka (saxophone).

STAFF COMMENTS

Millie says: Comet is Coming have sparked electricity with their new album, high energy jazz and a mixture of everything in between, hints of electronic and melodic interludes woven in masterfully. The trio are channeling existential questions and ideology but have certainly nailed their cosmic jazz sound, that’s for certain!
