A few months ago I could finally obtain the very rare 'The Return' 12" of The Second Coming so now I can offer a complete The Second Coming discography.
The Second Coming was one of the goth-tinged postpunk bands from Barnsley besides Party Day and The Silent Scream.
The Silent Coming did their first gig in Leeds with Creatures Of Habit (later Tea House Camp). They used to practice in a community centre but had to play gigs for the kids there.
Their first release was the 'Incest/Faithless' 7". They made up a controversy about this record as the Royston Comprehensive School choir are singing on 'Faithless' while having the track 'Incest' on the flip. So they told a local reporter that lots of people were complaining about the single. But nothing about it was true.
'The Return E.P.' 12" was the band's second release. A double A-side 12" single that comes in a textured sleeve.
Another 4 tracks appeared on the comp. albums 'Bites & Stabs' and 'Torn In Two' of which I already posted the best tracks from.
All records released on Torment Records of which I think was run by the band itself.
Frontman Dean Peckett later joined Party Day. Drummer Dean Ormston also played in The Silent Scream. Look into my archives for Party Day and The Silent Scream.
