COMUS ‘FIRST UTTERANCE’ – AN ORIGINAL AND MEGA RARE 1971 UK DAWN RECORDS VINYL LP, Cat No, DNLS 3019.
This is an original and super rare UK 1971 Debut UK Prog, Rock, Psych LP from Comus in Gate-fold Picture Sleeve with lyric insert.
Comus are a British progressive folk band which had a brief career in the early 1970s; their first album, First Utterance, gave them a cult following which persists. They reunited in 2009 and have played several festivals and released a new album. Comus was formed in 1969 by fellow art students Roger Wootton and Glenn Goring who developed their musical style performing in folk clubs in and around Bromley in Kent. The band was named after Comus (a masque by John Milton), and is also from the name of the Greek god Comus. The band grew from the early folk duo to the six piece ensemble that David Bowie came to appreciate. They appeared regularly at his Arts Lab project in Beckenham, Kent. He also invited them as support act for a 1969 concert at London's Purcell Rooms. Their first album, First Utterance, with cover art by Wootton and Goring, appeared in 1971. The music is largely acoustic art rock (also described as acoustic metal and acid folk) that blends elements of Eastern percussion, early folk and animal-like vocals. The lyrics involve violence, murder, mental disorder and the mystical. The group disbanded after this album, but Wootton, Hellaby, and Watson reformed the band with new members for their second album, To Keep from Crying, in 1974.
