Biography

Oxford, United Kingdom (1992 – present)

Comet Gain is a British band with heavy influences from Dexys Midnight Runners and . The band includes ex-Huggy Bear bass player Jon Slade and included future Velocette members Sarah Bleach and Jax Coombes.


Comet Gain was started in David Feck’s bedroom in Oxford, United Kingdom in 1992. He roped in housemate Phil Sutton, (The Soft City) to play drums, and then persuaded Sarah Bleach and Jax Coombes, who lived round the corner to join. He found guitarist Sam Pluck, little fella with a nice anorak, looked a bit like a girl. …er… in London and thus was born the first stage of the …er…Latest Soul Vision! Yes! They all met and played for the first time at the Monarch pub in Camden in 1993. You could do that then. Incidently Feck also met future CG singer Rachel Evans that same night. Foresight and planning!

Mr Wiiija, Gary Walker, saw them and signed them up, and before you could say ‘You know’ three times, they had put out a single ‘Aliens at War’/’A Kind of Loving”, which single handedly sounded like the TVPs, a bit. They then released the original version of ‘Kids at the Club’, backed with a song ruined by Feck and Phil’s awful rythm section, called ‘Goodbye Song’, for which at least one of them is still sorry.

But then, came a record beloved by Twee pop fans everywhere - though in those days they were called Cuties (well they were younger then!) that was also championed by DJ Danny Rampling at his club…no that’s not right…
