Comedy Of Errors is a Glasgow-based progressive rock band formed in January 1984 with a first line-up of Jim Johnson (keyboards, vocals), Joe Cairney (vocals), John McPhee (drums), Mark Spalding (bass) and Mike Barnard (guitar). Their first recording is a three track demo cassette called "Ever be the Prize", which is recorded at a studio in Blanefield (Scotland) in 1985, and followed by a mini album in 1986. A contribution for the Exposure album, a compilation album of new progressive rock bands compiled by Steven Wilson (No-Man, Porcupine Tree, Blackfield) is made with Time There Was, one of the tracks from the Mini Album, in 1986 as well. Mike Barnard leaves the band soon after the release of the Mini Album and Mark Spalding switches from bass to guitar while Barry Henderson becomes the new bass player. Following performances in both the UK and Europe, another demo tape called "24 Hours" is recorded in 1987, which in 1988 is combined with the Mini Album to form the band's only CD release under the French MSI label. Unfortuantly this release got a pressing mistake. The song The Student Price Part 1, closing song of the Mini Album, is replaced by another version of Behold The Knight (also from the Mini Album). The last recordings released by Comedy of Erros sees the light in 1989 with therelease of the three track cassette Hold On. By this time the band had made a musical change from progressive rock towards hardrock and Joe Cairney has left the band and is replaced by John Cowden. After an hiatus of nearly 23 years Disobey is released in 2011. During all those years Jim Johnson kept writing music and finally found the time to record those songs with some old and new members of Comedy Of Errors. The current line-up of the band is Joe Cairney (vocals), Jim Johnson (keyboards), Mark Spalding (guitar), Bruce Levick (drums) and John Fitzgerald (bass). Former bass player Hew Montgomery is best known for Abel Ganz. The new album "Disobey" can be ordered from the band website and samples can be heard at http://comedyoferrors.org/category/music-cat/ As of February 2013, the recording of the follow up to Disobey, entitled Fanfare and Fantasy is now complete. Final mixing is underway at Aubitt Studios in Southampton and the album is scheduled for release in spring 2013.
