Andrew Keeling - The Concise Musical Guide to the Comsat Angels (book, colour version)

The Comsat Angels are often unjustly overlooked for their important contribution to the music of the 1980s and beyond. This Musical Guide reassesses their position in the contemporary cultural landscape with analysis, musical examples, historical perspectives, transcriptions and input from band members.

Andrew Keeling argues that the Comsat Angels were a band of supreme originality, intelligence and insight and this may be the main reason for their neglect by the mass audience.

"Written with all the devotion and attention that the Comsats require and deserve." - Simon Armitage

Dear God attached, Andy Partridge's cover concept realised, and polarity corrected, this is Skylarking as XTC intended the world to see and hear it.
