COME are a seminal American band initially formed in Boston back in 1990. They were also linked to the ‘Oberlin’ scene that spawned fellow post rock/slow core legends Bitch Magnet and Codeine.

In 1992, COME released their debut album ’11:11′ on Matador Records. The album received critical acclaim from both the independent and mainstream press, and also from such rock luminaries as Dinosaur Jr.’s J. Mascis, Hüsker Dü’s Bob Mould, and Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain. They went on to release a further 3 further albums (via Matador, Domino, and the Beggars Banquetlabels ), they toured throughout US/Europe with Dinosaur Jr, The Breeders, Nirvana and Throwing Muses.

COME last played the UK 15 years ago in May 1998 at The Garage, London

At this point just two UK gigs have been announced;

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
