Biography

The Comsat Angels were an English post-punk band from Sheffield, England, initially active from 1978 to 1995. Their music has been described as “abstract pop songs with sparse instrumentation, many of which were bleak and filled with some form of heartache”. They have been credited as being an influence on later post-punk revival bands such as Blacklist, Bell Hollow, Editors and Interpol. The Comsat Angels toured heavily in the UK and western Europe, especially in the Netherlands; the band’s two concerts in August 1982 in Iceland had a strong influence on the music scene in Reykjav k. They also toured the United States twice. Their music has been extensively reissued and recompiled since 1995 by various record labels.
