Comet Gain – City Fallen Leaves

The Fists in the Pocket is the greatest song the Pooh Sticks never wrote, which is funny because the Pooh Sticks barely wrote the songs they laid claim to. Their CD liner notes explained all the different musical rip-offs, borrowings, and inspirations for each and every song. Such gleaning appears throughout this new Comet Gain CD, though listeners are left to their own devices to discern the sources. But, as made clear in the cut and paste packaging, a line is being drawn from Belle and Sebastian’s twee pop to the Fall’s anti-social rant’n’roll and, if you can believe it, the music makes the leap.
