What Kind of Dance Is This, Nothing Happens: Transmission 255, 2015 December 29

comsatangels-waitingforamiraclewithgraphics.jpg This seemed like a "downer" of a program when I listened back to it, but looking at the playlist I can't see why, except for the obvious. More on that momentarily. It probably had something to do with my mood, which proves as always that I am not fit to assess anything. My counselor tells me that we need to do some deep, background work but that my self-esteem is so wrecked that such work will probably make me feel worse about myself instead of better. So--how is your 2016?

Anyway, this is the first of a couple of Comsat Angels-themed episodes, which maybe explains the melancholy atmosphere of this particular audio file. It's weird--these records are so good and yet they just didn't make it into my circle of whatever, back in the day. I'm sure my old radio station had some stuff, but I don't remember anyone playing it; I had no friends who were into this band, never saw their records in a local store, etc. This seems like one of the quaint little things about pre-globalization. I remember having a copy of Surfer Rosa early on, loaning it to someone, having that person loan it to someone else, having an insanely hard time tracking my record down, and not getting it back until nearly a year later, by which point seemingly everyone I knew was a Pixies fan. For many an influential record, the roles were reversed--I depend on others and am by no means a tastemaker, no matter what my twitter bio says--but I can't for the life of me understand why Comsat Angels bypassed all of us. Clearly, though, it's never too late to be an emo kid.
