The Comet Is Coming on Friday 5th May 2017
Soup Kitchen present the return of Mercury Music Prize nominees
THE COMET IS COMING (LEAF LABEL)
+ ATA TAT
The Comet is Coming is the soundtrack to an imagined apocalypse. In the aftermath of widespread sonic destruction what sounds remain? Who will lead the survivors to new sound worlds? Who will chart the new frontier? In a warehouse somewhere in London 2013 a meeting would take place between three musical cosmonauts. They would pool their energies to build a vessel powerful enough to transport any party into outer space. Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet, Melt Yourself Down), Danalogue and Betamax (Soccer96).
Together they chart a path based on the encoded language of Sun Ra, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix and the BBC Radiophonic Workshops from which the band’s name emerged. It is after the end of the world, the stage is a spacecraft, the mic is an accelerator. Brace yourself for The Comet is Coming.
Their “Prophecy” EP received heaps of praise across BBC Radio channels and with their recently released debut album “Channel the Spirits” blazing a trail through the UK’s music press as well as being nominated for the 2016 Mercury Music Prize, The Comet is Coming faster than anyone dared believe possible.
