The Comet is Coming are back with another spoonful of cosmic jam / God Is In The TV

Bookmark and Share

The Comet is Coming are back with another spoonful of cosmic jam, this time entitled Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery (out now on Impulse!) and they aren't hiding their influences.  Be in no doubt: Space is the place.  Bandleader and saxophonist, Shabaka (King Shabaka) Hutchings, is a sometime member of the inter-dimensional, pharaonic Jazz cult that is Sun Ra Arkestra, and makes no bones about the fact that he sees himself as a carrier of the flame for the great man.  He's also the leader of Sons of Kemet, who gave us last year's exquisitely titled and inarguably brilliant LP Your Queen is a Reptile.  He's joined by Dan ‘Danalogue' Leavers and Max ‘Betamax' Hallett from electronica duo Soccer96, on keyboards and drums respectively.  They've been playing together as The Comet is Coming for several years, and their first album, Channel the Spirits, was nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2016.
