SONG FOR TODAY: Astral - Come And Go

It's time to introduce a band who I know very little about, because very little information about them exists. In the late 1990's I heard an amazing track on Radio 1's Evening Session by a group called Astral. I was overjoyed to find a copy of it in HMV and it became one of my favourite tracks of the era, and still remains so. I bought the follow up single 'Future Times', which was equally as blissful and then this band disappeared. I will write more about Astral soon, but here is the incredible 'Come And Go'....


  1. Hi. I read your bit about Astral. I was the drummer and the band split in around 1999. I am still in touch with the singer, John Neary, who is still performing in a band called The Last National Band. We all met up around Christmas time in 2012 and went in the studio to play some of the old tunes. Happy memories. Dave.

  2. Worked with Robert from the group
