THE COMETS – Help Me / Big Business Jokes 7”

Orange Records – Orlando (1983)

Mitch Shields

Help Me sounds vaguely like the Jam – it’s good, I can listen to it. Big Business Jokes sounds more like the Jam than the Jam does – that’s not a compliment – Jesus – get your own sound!! These dudes have one more single that never seems to turn up. I’m pretty sure they played around the Central Florida region quite a bit. I don’t remember seeing them – but who knows…..I’m also not sure if this Orange Records is the same Orange Records that Rich Rags was on.

  1. The Comets first single "SEE IT IN WRITING/"LIVING THE ANSWER" is also very good,and the EP "PICK OF THE LITTER" rocks.Their song "AURORA" is on Hyde & Zekes "THE SINKHOLE TAPES".ORANGE RECORDS was out of Ocala,not Orlando,and also had releases from the bands THINK TANK,CIARA,and GUTTA PERCHA.
