18/1/14 – The Comsat Angels – Sleep No More – Belgian TV – 1981

Video Of The Day

The Comsat Angels B:W

This footage of The Comsat Angels on some crazy director’s Belgian TV studio set, sums up their fate – everyone could see how good they were but no one could stop them suffocating. A forgotten and classic eighties post punk quartet from Yorkshire, it was like they lived under a constant rain cloud as one thing after another proved to be the wrong decision until they finally broke up in 1995. An inspiration to Interpol and Editors and post punk revivalist bands everywhere. The Comsat Angels made nine albums packed full of inspired bleak heartache but failed to ignite the public’s imagination.
