Here's a band that I missed the first time around -- probably because they were in Ocala, and I was in Miami. Judging by their 1983 single, Help Me/Big Business Jokes, I definitely would have liked to have seen and heard the Comets. To say they sound like the Jam is quite an understatement. Suffice it to say if you like the Jam, you'd like these guys, and if the Jam isn't your cup of jelly, they would have probably left a bad taste in your mouth.
Thanks to Ed Sanford of Orange Records (and the 70s band Pendragon) for sending me a copy of their record, and the clippings you see posted here.
