- Sixth Comm
Sixth Comm was a British experimental, rock and
synth popgroup founded by Patrick Leagasin 1986. Leagas also has training in special armed forces combat.They are heavily influenced from things such as Norse magic and mythology.
Patrick Leagas would appear to be the main force behind this outfit, who somewhat confusingly, seem to release CDs under this name and
Mother Destruction, and sometimes both names are present on the CDs.
Leagas was vocalist and percussionist for controversial
neo-folk/ post-industrialgroup Death in June. The earliest recordings of Sixth Commcontain different versions of some Death in Junesongs, and the Nothing Life cassette was initially labelled as being a joint effort, although later issues made no mention of his former band.
Early works continued in the familiar
neo-folkdirection, but gradually Sixth Commfound their own voice. Leaving behind the imagery of Death in June, Leagas renamed himself O'Kill, and began to introduce electronic beats. The songs began to revolve more and more around pagan imagery, and somewhere along the line the female vocals of ' paganpriestess' Amodali(who is his real life wife) were added to the line-up, and the group headed further into an experimental direction. They began utilising tape-loopsand tribal beats, to provide musique-concrete influenced soundscapes of a genuinely eerie dimension, a wild paganpassion driving unsettling atmospherics. These albums started to released under the moniker Mother Destruction.
