Rollover to Zoom 



Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of this 1981 album by the Sheffield-based post punk outfit including non-LP singles, demos and BBC radio session tracks, plus booklets with rare photos, memorabilia and detailed liner notes. Sleep No More was The Comsat Angels' second album and is widely regarded as a masterpiece that had a major influence on bands such as U2 (who toured with the band). Sleep No More produced no singles, but it had the highest UK chart ranking for any Comsats album, peaking at #51. One of the most underrated acts of the early 80's, the quartet twinned together sparse, economical musicianship and a large sound. Perhaps too dark for populist tastes at the time, Comsat's music has been described as quot;abstract pop songs with spare instrumentation, many of which were bleak and filled with some form of heartache.quot; Unjustly overlooked for their important contribution to music, their influence however, is enormous; the haunting atmospherics and simply played, but expansive nature of their music having a direct effect on countless post-punk revival bands including Blacklist, Bell Hollow, Editors and Interpol.
