Comet--profiled in these pages not so long ago when they were a young Mesquite band struggling just to get a gig in Dallas--ain't so young and struggling anymore. The band is preparing to release two albums in the upcoming months. One is the much-rumored and long-anticipated (no, really) 10-inch, six-song EP on the Denton-based Atomic Sound label; Comet's Jim Stone says it will consist of three studio recording and three home four-track songs, all of which date back more than a year. The second release will be the band's full-length debut on the English label Dedicated, home to the likes of Spiritualized. The band just finished recording the album in Baltimore with ex-Mercury Rev Dave Baker, and it's scheduled for release in April or May.
