“In the sky will be seen a fire, dragging a tail of sparks...”
Just as Nostradamus prophesised in his quatrains, The Comet Is Coming: “The great star for seven days will burn, the cloud will cause two suns to appear and the big mastiff all night will howl.”
End times are upon us people, but Danalogue The Conqueror, Betamax Killer and King Shabaka are here to spread light and joy and fire, for they are The Comet Is Coming.
Five tracks of freewheeling psychedelia and honking jazz punk mayhem is your soundtrack. Strap in and lift-off to the dizzying ‘Neon Baby’. Slip down the helter skelter wormhole of ‘Star Exploding In Slow Motion’ and wake up dazed on a verdant astral plane in time to ‘Do The Milky Way’. Moon-bathe in a sonic Sea of Tranquility that is ‘Cosmic Serpent’ and comedown to the dark ambient state-of-the-universe address that is ‘Final Days Of The Apocalypse’. But most importantly: hit the floor and shake it like there’s no tomorrow.
Here is the universe in a microcosm; the life-force distilled down to its raw essence: sex and dancing. Sub-bass, slamming analogue, unhinged sax breaks. The rhythm of life. Armageddon is coming: what better way to spend it than letting our brave young voyagers take you on a topographical journey of a different bent?
