Comets On Fire CD discography Santa Cruz noisemakers Comets on Fire's debut recording is basically 32 minutes of screaming garage/psych-inspired insanity. The guitars are loud. Ethan Miller's unhinged vocals are loud. The drums are loud. The songs are short blasts of fury that sound inspired by wild bands from the '60s (Sonics, Blue Cheer), '70s (Stooges, Cramps), and beyond (Jon Spencer, the Make-Up). Helping keep Comets on Fire out of residence in cliché city is the sheer amount of power and abandon the band plays with and the presence of Neil Harmonson on echoplex. The echoplex is an old tape-driven echo and delay unit that can create some wild sonic effects. On tracks like the driving "Graverobbers" or the guitar-mad "Days of Vapors," the vocals are fed through the machine; elsewhere it just makes random weird and cool noises that add a lot of texture and depth to Comets on Fire's sound. This is a hot and exciting record; the energy never flags and the band never turns anything down much below full volume, even when the tempo is slowed on "Let's Take It All." Garage punk fans would be doing themselves a real favor by checking this disc out. This release on Alternative Tentacles is actually a re-release of the band's ultra-rare first record; as a bonus, the reissue contains 28 minutes of a noisy, energy-packed live show that shows the band to be loud, really loud. And pretty loose, too. ~ ...
Blue Cathedral Blue Cathedral CD (2004) 3 stars
CD $14.19 Buy It  Details
Comets On Fire albums After two intense, ragged releases that showed developmental promise, Comets on Fire truly arrived with their third effort--and Sub Pop debut--BLUE CATHEDRAL. The group's blend of razor-edged garage raunch, Echoplex-fueled psychedelia, proto-metal riffing, and indie-noise cacophony culminates in heavy-rock nirvana here, with the overdriven guitars, swirling keys, and octopus-armed drumming going every direction. Though Comets on Fire's sound is unapologetically retro--following in the footsteps of 1960s pioneers the Stooges, Blue Cheer, Syd Barrett-era ...
Field Recordings from the Sun Field Recordings from the Sun CD (2002)
CD $18.05 Buy It  Details
Comets On Fire music CDs Santa Cruz semi-supergroup Comets on Fire, featuring folks from various other bands -- like the Lowdown's Noel Harmonson on "echoplex and oscillations" and Ethan Miller on guitar and vocals -- created an agreeably tripped-out second record with Field Recordings From the Sun. Though the first, hyper-limited-edition release was MC5 meets Hawkwind in the farthest reaches of the galaxy straight-up, Field Recordings tempers that somewhat with a little more restraint here and there, making ...
Avatar Avatar CD (2006)
CD $16.89 Buy It  Details Digipak
Comets On Fire discography Their third proper full-length and second album for Sub Pop, 2006's AVATAR is the most expansive and sonically varied release yet from Bay Area acid-rock combo Comets on Fire; it's also their most blatantly classic rock-inspired effort as well. Acting as something of a punk-rock auxiliary to the so-called "freak folk" movement of the early 2000s, Comets on Fire are not without certain obvious Summer of Love trappings, and the shuffling, near-jazzy noodlings ...
