The Comsat Angels are often unjustly overlooked for their important contribution to the music of the 1980s and beyond. This Musical Guide reassesses their position in the contemporary cultural landscape with analysis, musical examples, historical perspectives, transcriptions and input from band members. The author argues that the Comsat Angels were a band of supreme originality, intelligence and insight and this may be the main reason for their neglect by the mass audience.
