Arthur Johnson - Drums, Sean O‘Brien - Bass
In 1992, COME released their debut album, 11:11 on Matador Record. IT received critical acclaim from both the independent and mainstream press - and also from such rock luminaries as Dinosaur Jr.’s J. Mascis, Hüsker Dü’s Bob Mould, and Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain.
The band released 3 further albums (ON Matador, Domino, Beggars Banquet) AND toured throughout US/Europe with Dinosaur Jr, The Breeders, Nirvana and Throwing Muses.

Michael (Lazarus Clamp)"Their dense, intense sound combined three striking elements. Firstly, there was the cold-as winter, sharp-and-brittle Post-Punk tonality which was characteristic of the Oberlin scene. secondly, this was driven by a heavy and intricate take on the Blues: broken, then reconstructed, but knotted and twisted into new and jagged shapes. Thirdly, there were Zedek's Vocals: grainy, throaty, and straining to rise above the throttling engine of one of the best drilled bands on the early 1990's circuit. The live experience was not dissimilar to being hit by a truck. No one imitated them at the time, and no one has dared to do so since."
