Thee Comet Allotment

Thee Comet Allotment: The greatest improvisational drug-pop group of all time.

Righteous, visionary, humble and operating only for a self-imposed 10-month period in 2006, Thee Comet Allotment were a 100,000% focused hydra-headed psychedelic travelling musical unit of mythical proportions.

Ranging from anywhere between two and six members at a time, they formed around a shared belief in experimental living. In their 10 month lifetime they each learned multiple musical instruments from scratch and partook in the the kind of sustained experimental drug use that only true kings have the stamina for.

Initial recording sessions in their small workshop soon expanded into full-on improvisational field recording events as the band focused on visiting the finest natural spaces of Fife and filling them with beautiful sounds, ugly yelping and hunners of dope smoke.

From the psychedelic childlike daydreams of the Live In Windygates EP, through the long- form mantras of Who Made The Rice & Sappy Journey, to the dense & environmentally concerned Sunsplash single/dvd/boxset, Thee Comet Allotment never settled for anything less than white-hot unconsciously holy mung-pop.

The single most relentlessly creative band in the history of Scotland, they made full percussion sets from shingle and driftwood, fashioned strange discordant wind instruments from broken rifles, manipulated mini-digeridoos into bizarre mouth drums.

Through song, they invented and documented a whole mythology around their drug-induced vision of Sundh, a giant mammoth man who served as the band's muse and they improvised many hymns to him.
Later they recorded a full album about how one of their members was the newest son of God, entitled "I'm The New Jesus In Town".

But through all this, they never strayed from their crystal clear utopian musical vision and the simple joys of traditional drug-pop, which the band may have actually invented.

Come visit Thee Comet Allotment, where shit turns to gold 24 hours a day.

LIVE IN EAST WEMYSS CAVES.

In spring 2006, an expanded 4-piece line-up of THEE COMET ALLOTMENT gathered in a cave underneath mythical MacDuff Castle and performed a short set of acoustic guitar and percussion-based songs, expanding on their previous successes in Windygates and East Wemyss beach; their only two previous live excursions at this time.

Utilizing the caves wonderful reverb, the quartet improvised a set of cave-inspired gems showcasing T.C.A.s recently acquired full-size Australian didgeridoo, including the stand-outs Limey Nights (Stalagmites), the classic Energy Cave Train, Diplodocus and Neanderthal, the latter taking visual prompting from the genuine pictish cave paintings on the walls to create a strong mental image of those times in the listener.

With genuine time-eroded ambience and cavey auras, this is an important document in the history of recorded music of Scotland by people with brain damage and full-time drug habits. Not to be missed.

I'M THE NEW JESUS IN TOWN

As the searing summer of 2006 simmered down into the crispy climat of a beautiful Fife autumn, Thee Comet Allotment temporarily withdrew from outdoor events and hunkered down in their psychedelic musical workshop so they could fucking cane it with drugs even harder.

The group's long-term experiments with soapbar and subconscious thought were now reaching a peak of intensity & over the mushy season regular T.C.A. multi-instrumentalist Alan developed a terrifying messiah complex. Spirits were high and several band members also strongly suspected he was the newest son of God.

This shared belief spawned the stone-cold-classic "I'm The New Jesus In Town" album, 12 tracks written and recorded in 2 hours ranging from psychedelic hymns, to solemn country laments, to furious mung-pop & avant-garde instrumentals, all of which were absolutely pie-eyed with insane messianic delusions.
