Sixth Comm


Sixth Comm

Sixth Comm was a British experimental, rock and synth pop group founded by Patrick Leagas in 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-industrial group Death in June. The earliest recordings of Sixth Comm contain different versions of some Death in June songs, 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-folk direction, but gradually Sixth Comm found 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 'pagan priestess' 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-loops and tribal beats, to provide musique-concrete influenced soundscapes of a genuinely eerie dimension, a wild pagan passion driving unsettling atmospherics. These albums started to released under the moniker Mother Destruction.
