Patrick Leagas has been making music since 1978. He was one of the three founder members of “Death in June”, one half of the duo “Mother Destruction” during the 1990’s and has also been producing music sporadically under the name Six Comm since 1986. Often spending years at a time away from recording and live shows, Patrick returned with 6 comm in March 2013 and has begun a series of concerts to re kindle memories and to show his work live which has been little performed over the decades.
Ontogeny is a series of releases to re- present his best known compositions totally re- recorded for a new generation and an audience who are not familiar with his work. This vinyl release is number two in the series. Patrick / 6comm will be performing several shows in 2014 where he will be playing the best known and most playable of his old work in a live situation, as many of his compositions such as the 20 songs on the double album ‘Headless- Let the moon speak’, his last work, do not lend themselves easily to the format of live work. By the end of 2014 6comm will move forward to new compositions different in sound and nature to much of the material presented here on Ontogeny II. Patrick though known mainly as one of the founders of the Dark wave – Neo folk scene has never adhered to any genres at all and has composed a wider variety of music than perhaps anyone else within those genres. 2014 will be the last chance to see his old works up until 2010 performed live. Beyond that we will have to see if he remains with his musical activities or whether he will disappear from view again.
