Home / Biography / Comus


Acquiring their name from a figure within a John Milton poem, Comus was a short-lived but powerful folk-rock group that appears to have produced an attempt to combine components of King Crimson using the affects of Pentangle, Fairport Convention as well as other more traditional folk clothes. The effect was a occasionally unnerving mixture of ethereal and dark shades. The cover of the debut, First Utterance (1971), bears a stunning and most likely deliberate resemblance towards the cover of WITHIN THE Court from the Crimson Ruler. Over time of silence, the music group re-emerged with To AVOID Crying in 1974, getting into a far more experimental placement. Original copies from the first record still command exceptional prices, despite latest reissues by BGO within the U.K. and Si-Wan in Asia.
