lcomets19.jpg Going up?

Little Comets are always going up in our book and the three-piece are celebrating the 10th anniversary of recording their super debut album with a gig at Newcastle’s Boiler Shop.

Over the last decade Little Comets have consistently cemented their place as one of the very best bands to come out of the north-east. And they’re one of those rare bands who arrived fully formed with the release of their debut album, ‘In Search Of Elusive Little Comets’, with its citrus-sharp, Vampire Weekend-like melodies, and breathless sense of purpose and drive. It still sounds as fresh as a daisy today and they’ll be treating fans to songs from it when they play a nostalgia-fuelled set at Newcastle’s glorious Boiler Shop. As part of the celebrations the band have just recorded a new live version of their debut album at Liverpool’s Motor Museum and – get this! – the original album will now be made available on vinyl for the first time. Housed in an exclusive double-gated sleeve, each limited edition will feature photos and other special snippets from the past. Imagine!

Little Comets, Friday 15 November, Boiler Shop, South Street, Newcastle, 7pm, £17. boilershop.net (For info on the vinyl release visit: littlecomets.com)
