Comateens – Cool Chick / Dangerzone 7inch

Comateens – Cool Chick // Dangerzone (Teenmaster Records) 1979. The first Comateens 7inch is sort of an obscurity even amongst the kbd/h2d crowd. I do not know why. Its a great piece of late 1970′s new wave. The Comateens went on to be one of those really annoying eighties bands. But this EP is different.

I have played Cool Chick for many friends over the years and I find that it is either something you will LOVE or HATE. I think that this is based to a degree on how comfortable you are with the er…flamboyance of the lead singer on “Cool Chick”. Personally I think it is an awesome song.

“Dangerzone” on the B Side is just a really good guitar based New Wave tune. Good stuff.

    Dangerzone cuts off too early.

    Yes, Dangerzone cuts off early. And I’m dying to hear the whole song, it fucking rocks. Help!

    A real classic. The later version of Cool Chick on Comateens first album is also OK, but it lacks Ramona Jan’s guitar.

    Hmmm – never heard this band before, i’m ashamed to say. The vocal is great, like Nico in spandex or lycra. NOW, what about the Slow Children’s “Staring at the ceiling” ? ; the original 78 single version, not the abysmal 80′s album rerecording… THAT would be really welcome.

    This is one of my fav 45′s in my collection. Very obscure, I was surprised to find it mentioned.
