Damnably Presents: Come
A four piece rock band who originally formed in 1990. After a year of jamming together, Come released the single “Car” on Sub Pop in 1991. The song, a seven-minute epic in the blues-noir style of The Birthday Party, encapsulated what was to become Come’s trademark style: dark, intense and lengthy songs marked by Zedek’s emotional and distressed vocals, abrupt rhythms, and the tension-filled guitar interplay between Thalia Zedek and Chris Brokaw, both extraordinarily accomplished guitarists.
In 1992, Come released their debut album, 11:11 which received acclaim from both the independent and established media. After the release of 11:11, Brokaw left his second band, Codeine, devoting himself full-time to Come. After the release of the debut album, Come received praise from Dinosaur Jr.’s lead singer J. Mascis, Hüsker Dü’s Bob Mould, and Nirvana’s frontman Kurt Cobain.
Johnson and O’Brien left the band after Don’t Ask Don’t Tell to pursue other careers. The following album, the short Near-Life Experience, was recorded with a number of different musicians, including drummer Mac McNeilly of the Jesus Lizard and Bundy K. Brown of Tortoise.
In 1998, Come released the 66-minute tour de force Gently, Down The Stream, which took its cue from Near Life Experience, but featured a more fluent integrated sound-scape. The band took an indefinite pause as solo albums from Brokaw and Zedek were produced.
After a handful of reunion shows in 2010 and 2011, Come’s original lineup will be playing selected shows in 2013.
