The 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
