Before becoming French pop star with Charles de Goal, Patrick Blain was part of C.O.M.A., a synth-punk band that recorded one and only album, chock with ideas, then dismantled shortly after. Originally released on Flamingo in 1979, ‘Clinik Organik Musak Anatomik’ is now a much sought after collector. Some will find similarities with Metal Urbain in their sound, especially tracks like “Assaut,” but C.O.M.A. is certainly weirder and mix clangy punk guitar, proto-industrial synth, harmonica, and slapdash electronic drums. Each song is its own experiment.
Inspired by bands like Devo, Wire, XTC, Kraftwerk, The Residents and Magazine, C.O.M.A. is The Screamers this side of the Atlantic Ocean !
