Comsat Angels was another great band from Sheffield's
post punk music scene, but appeared to be more outsiders
looking in on the Sheffield scene.
They formed in 1979 bringing out a single 'Red Planet'
on a Sheffield label with a short lifespan, called Junta
Records. National exposure gained through articles by
Andy Gill (journalist for the NME) and radio on the John
Peel show, led to a deal with Polydor in 1980.
They took everybody by surprise with the release of their
debut album 'Waiting for a Miracle'.
Unfortunatly we could not find a way to focus on their
story in 'Made in Sheffield', but I hope for the Comsat
fans out there that the film will give an insight into
what was going on around them in that starting period
