The Comsat Angels Chasing Shadows on 180g Import LP
Demon Records is delighted to present the reissue program of five albums from The Comsat Angels originally recorded between 1980-90 on vinyl. These albums prove beyond all reasonable doubt that while commercial recognition may have eluded the Sheffield-based quartet, they still accumulated one of the most enviable, enduring and unsung catalogs known to rock.
The series begins with the trio of iconic, post-punk era LPs the Comsats recorded for Polydor – Waiting For A Miracle, Sleep No More and Fiction - plus Chasing Shadows coupled with Fire On The Moon (the latter recorded while the Comsat Angels were known as Dream Command), which were both originally released by Island Records.
1986's Chasing Shadows saw the Comsat Angels signed by Chris Blackwell to Island Records, with Robert Palmer on production duties, the fans were delighted to hear the band move back towards their earlier atmospheric sound, after two ‘poppier' releases on the Jive label. A genuine ‘return to form'.
