Comet Gain – Howl of the Lonely Crowd

January 01, 1970

(What’s Your Rupture?)


On the cusp of their 20th anniversary, London’s beloved Comet
Gain still resides on the outer perimeter of English pop. But with the
incredible Howl of the Lonely Crowd,
the band’s chief proprietor, David Feck, aims straight for the widespread
exposure that’s eluded his band’s unique Fall-meets-Dexys sonic hybrid all
these years by assembling an elite team of producers, including longtime group
hero Edwyn Collins, Ryan Jarman of the Cribs, The Clientele’s Alisdair McLean
and famed Creation Records soundsmith Brian O’Shaughnessy. And by combining
their collective input through the talent of the current Comet lineup that now
includes the likes of ex-Huggy Bear guitarist Jon Slade, former Morrissey
drummer Woodie Taylor and trumpeter Terry Edwards, what’s been created across
this baker’s dozen tracks is nothing short of a poignant, powerful referendum
on the state of modern England that cements CG’s place as one of the finest and
most resilient indie acts to emerge from the UK.
