MusicMafia present Manchester band The Creature Comfort

The Creature Comfort have been called 'Manchester’s great lost post-punk band’, but they’re lost no more. Led as always by engaging frontman and offbeat lyricist Ben Le Jeune they’re back with a new line up, completed by guitarist Jose Ortega from Spanish flamenco-punksters Termofrigiduspropelling fresh and overwhelming energy into groove-ridden psychedelic-tinged post-punk music. 

Their self-titled album, recently released (on Critter Communication cat no CC003) to critical acclaim, is a perfect showcase for their classic-sounding songs that have been compared to Pixies, Stooges, Clash, Doors, early Talking Heads - and the B-52’s if they came from Burnage. 

Lead single Sauce gained airplay on XFM and national BBC radio, and a well received and greatly reviewed promotional tour last autumn including London and the North West culminated in a sold out show in their home town at one of the hottest up-and-coming new venues Gullivers. 

The band’s history goes back some years working with legendary manager Gareth Evans (The Stone Roses), and they honed their stagecraft with a residency at one of the key venues of the time (The International) while sharing the bill with leading alternative acts like Gun Club and Mudhoney, and building up a large underground following including Europe where they toured.

And now they’re back, bigger, bolder, louder and more exciting than ever. 

The Creature Comfort are currently working on new material set for release in the autumn and gigging throughout the summer.
