CAP PAS CAP
CAP PAS CAP mix hyperactive shape shifting motorik pop chants with pounding
drums, fuzzed up drones and no wave led synths.
In 2006 the band released the critically acclaimed Not Not Is Fine EP on
Skinny Wolves Records in Europe and Rally/Klee in Japan. 'A breathtaking debut
release, their love of krautrock is conspicuous; jagged riffs with clean edges,
and clever, repetitive melodies abound.' Totally Dublin Magazine.
The EP sold out completely in weeks.
Through 2006 & 2007 CAP PAS CAP embarked on tours with The Go! Team, Crystal
Castles and Erase Errata and performances with No Age, Foals, These New
Puritans and The Gossip.
Dazed & Confused magazine said at the time 'CAP PAS CAP occupy that awkward
no-man's-land where Sonic Youth, Talking Heads and !!! might get it on at Frank
Zappa's slumber party' while X Mist Germany said: 'CAP PAS CAP remind me of
anything that was ever fascinating about Post-Punk and No Wave, hints of bands
like Bush Tetras, Pylon, early Sonic Youth..'
In 2008 CAP PAS CAP released a split 7'' with Marnie Stern (Kill Rock Stars)
on Hidden Hive Records and now prepare to unveil radically new material on a
series of limited vinyl only pressings recorded with Al O'Connell (who has
worked with The Rapture and Klaxons).
The first 12'' 'We Are Men' is released on November 29th on Skinny Wolves
Records with remixes by Jape, Decal and thatboytim.
