About this release

Demon Records is delighted to present the reissue programme of the albums by 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 catalogues known to rock.

This 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); and also 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. All these expanded editions come with bonus second discs, plus booklets with, lyrics, rare photos and detailed liner notes by Tim Peacock (Record Collector) with participation from Steve Fellows.

The little-known FIRE ON THE MOON was recorded while the Comsats were briefly known as Dream Command, a move encouraged by the label in an attempt to circumvent issues with the band name in the USA. The album was only ever released in the USAand the Netherlands, and quickly deleted. A real “lost” album for Comsat Angels fans.
