Originally released in 1979, the mythic synth-punk lost classic C.O.M.A. album is available on CD for the first time, ever, including four unreleased tracks. Before becoming a French pop star with Charles De Goal, Patrick Blain was part of C.O.M.A., a synth-punk band that recorded only one album, chock full of ideas, which then dismantled shortly after. Originally released on Flamingo in 1979, Clinik Organik Musak Anatomik is now a much sought-after collector's item. Some will find similarities with Metal Urbain in their sound, especially on tracks like "Assaut," but C.O.M.A. is certainly weirder and mixes clangy punk guitar, proto-industrial synth, harmonica, and slapdash electronic drums. Each song is its own experiment. Inspired by bands like Devo, Wire, XTC, Kraftwerk, The Residents, and Magazine, C.O.M.A. were the screamers on the French side of the Atlantic Ocean. Housed in a digisleeve CD with an 8-page fold-out poster booklet with lyrics.
