Comet Gain, shooting star – Liberation

Release of ‘The Misfit Jukebox’, a compilation of tracks by Comet Gain, one of the most underrated British bands of the 90s.

More than a reissue, this compilation bringing together demos, studio offcuts, live recordings and downright unreleased tracks is the best gateway to a band often described as one of the most underrated in the Kingdom in terms of indie rock. . It is true that since 1992, the date of its launch, we cannot say that this London collective with variable geometry gathered around David “Christian” Feck has burst into full light. But The Misfit Jukebox allows, rather than picking at random from their ten albums, to fully realize the quality of Feck’s songwriting, halfway between the folk-punk of Nikki Sudden and the Swell Maps and the crazy power of Mark E.Smith. This nevertheless situates the level of Comet Gain which, after listening to these twirling seventeen titles which are anything but the bottom of the drawer, one wonders how we could have missed it so far. As always, better late than never.
