Format Info

7" - black

Comet Gain are a British Indie Pop band, who have been making beautiful noise since 1992. Formed by singer-songwriter and guitarist David Christian (aka David Feck/Charlie Damage) and Phil Sutton, with musical influences including Post-Punk and Northern Soul, Pitchfork called them “one of the most underrated contemporary indie bands in the UK”.

The two recordings on this 7″ record were recorded in the Spring / Summer of 1996. Shortly after, Comet Gain disbanded as it was, with the majority forming the band Velocette, leaving David Christian to continue Comet Gain with new members.

On Side A, recorded back then, ‘Only Happy When I’m Sad‘ was recently released on the ‘Misfit Jukebox‘ compilation album (Tapete Records, TR540).

On Side B, first time to vinyl, this version of ‘Dreams Of A Working Girl‘ was originally found on the NME C96 compilation CD.
