AN ARCADE FROM THE WARM RAIN THAT.. (FORTUNA POP)
"An Arcade From The Warm Rain That Falls" Vinyl 7" EP with insert (Limited Edition of 500). Led by songwriter David Feck, Comet Gain have released a string of critically acclaimed records on Kill Rock Stars, Track & Field and What's Your Rupture? - albums such as Tigertown Pictures, Réalistes, City Fallen Leaves and 2008's singles collection Broken Record Prayers establishing the band as one of the most fearlessly passionate and fiercely intelligent British bands around.
Unapologetically literate and emotional, Comet Gain seek out inspiration as much in the music of girl-group era pop, heartfelt Americana, British post-punk, and 60s psychedelia, as in the words and images of the beat poets and in the cinema of both the British and French new-wave of the late 50 and early 60s.
From Goffin and King, The Modern Lovers, The Seeds, Dylan, The Impressions, Big Star, Julian Cope, and the Flying Nun and Creation labels, to Kerouac, Pynchon, Shelagh Delaney, and Godard, the band are influenced by an incessant drive to "distill the spirit and those moments of musical defiance".
Comet Gain insist on locating and articulating the romance and the heartbreak that permeate and terrorize the everyday, whilst refusing to slip into sentiment or mawkishness.
The aesthetic they have made their own has chimed with and galvanized a slew of iconic bands and musicians; from artists like The Make-Up, The Yummy Fur, Jens Lekman, and Herman Dune, to a younger generation of DIY musicians like The Cribs, Let's Wrestle, Male Bonding, Love Is All, Veronica Falls, and Crystal Stilts, Comet Gain's influence remains a traceable and tangible thing.
This limited edition seven inch features the single version of "An Arcade From The Warm Rain That Falls", featuring Ryan Jarman of The Cribs on violin, from the critically acclaimed album "Howl Of The Lonely Crowd", with two exclusive B-sides, a cover of Carla Thomas' "Take It To My Baby" from the West Heath album sessions with Edwyn Collins, Ryan Jarman and Seb Lewsley and "You're Just Lonely" from the album sessions with Brian O'Shaunghessy and Alasdair Maclean (The Clientele) at Bark Studios.
