The Comsat Angels - Waiting For A Miracle album download

Waiting For A Miracle 1980 Stephen Fellows - vocals, lead guitar; Kevin Bacon - bass; Mic . Waiting For A Miracle.

Waiting for a Miracle is the debut album by The Comsat Angels, released 5 September 1980 on Polydor Records. The entire album was recorded in 10 days. Frontman Stephen Fellows explained how they were able to accomplish this: "We were totally organised.

Waiting for a Miracle is a sorcerous first album, at least once it sinks in, after short-to-long phases of puzzlement, bemusement, and fascination. Its songs of romantic ruin, paranoia, and doubt are spare, inelastic, and ceaselessly on edge. Even when the songs are at their bounciest and most alluring, they have an insular and alien quality.

The Comsat Angels debut remastered, reissued and re-appraised for LTW by Ged Babey who is transported back to the early 80's and his angsty teenage years. A lot of people do remember the band and Waiting For A Miracle in particular, with some affection. It’s very lazy journalism quoting from press releases but fuck it, this says it all really; Named after the J. G. Ballard story of the same name, The Comsat Angels were born in the UK Post-Punk era. One of the most underrated acts of the early 80’s, the Sheffield four-piece twinned together sparse, economical musicianship and a large sound.

Independence Day. The Comsat Angels. Produced by The Comsat Angels & Peter Wilson. Album Waiting For A Miracle. Independence Day Lyrics. A declaration Of the intention To stop extension into my airspace I'll put the flags up Pull up the anchor And then you'll know you're in a different place. CHORUS But I can't stand up, and I can't sit down Cause a great big problem stopped me in my tracks I can't relax cause I haven't done a thing And I can't do a thing cause I can't relax

The Comsat Angels are more than worthy of this recognition. Its hard to describe Waiting for a Miracle in exact terms. It is obviously inspired by Joy Division or early Echo and the Bunnymen but more slowed down and atmospheric. Think "17 Seconds" era Cure but depressing rather than nihilistic. The band, the Sound has also garnered some attention but the Comsats were more subtle and unnerving. However, unlike U2, the Comsat Angels are not political. Their second album Sleep No More is also worth picking up but eventually they became a derivative new wave band. However, when their ideas were focused as on Waiting for a Miracle, they captured the climate of the times as successfully as other, more famous bands. Get this album before it goes out of print again.

Edsel are planning deluxe re-issues of The Comsat Angels albums from Waiting For A Miracle through to (Dream Command’s) Fire On The Moon. The best bit of news is that this includes the first re-issue of the long out-of-print Chasing Shadows album. I’ll post details (such as tracklisting, whether they are remastered etc) as soon as they are confirmed by Edsel.
