Other Futures

The Comet
is Coming

​Three musical cosmonauts from London, King Shabaka, Danalogue The Conquerer and Betamax Killer, pool their energies to build a vessel powerful enough to transport any party into outer space. 

​Together they chart a path based on the encoded language of Sun Ra, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix and the BBC Radiophonic Workshops from which the band's name emerged.

The Comet is Coming is the soundtrack to an imagined apocalypse. In the aftermath of widespread sonic destruction, what sounds remain? Who will lead the survivors to new sound worlds? Who will chart the new frontier? It is after the end of the world, the stage is a spacecraft, the mic is an accelerator. Brace yourself for The Comet is Coming...
