When the lights came on at Comets on Fire...

Just back from a Comets on Fire show at the Scala in London. Comets are a band that Will "Greenfuzz" Sweeney turned me on to some time ago. Rumour has it that tonights set was to be the second from last show ever for Santa Cruz's premier psyche rockers. Their final show will be the performance of their amazing Blue Cathedral LP, at the Primavera festival in Barcelona, scheduled for this Thursday.

To begin with this evening, they struggled with poor sound, but this improved as the show went on. And they more than made up for it with an amazing finale, especially when the lights came on at the end of the show. They kept on playing and they blew the audience away. They were not going to leave the stage until they finished what they had to play. At that point, I realised that they will be sorely missed.

Another tip of the hat to Barry Hogan from ATP for bringing them to the UK once again. And good luck to Comets on Fire, whatever they go on to do in the future.

And finally, if you are in Barcelona on Thursday evening at 8pm...!!!
