    Capratone

    • with Holy Ghost Fathers and Keith Moss
    Wed 25th of June 2003, The Music Room, Abbey Street.
    7 Euros, doors open 8pm

    • Sat 21st of June 2003, Black Fort Organics Gallery, Temple Bar, 2.30pm


    With the exception of one brief, but triumphant, performance at Thomas Dunnings inaugural Hoot Night in April (hailed as "comparatively tame"), it was way back in the dark days of Feburuary when Caprtone last took to the stage.

    In the weeks and months that have passed although Capratonic House has remained quiet, much has happened. Drummer and statistician Key Incident completed his long awaited, but controversial, thesis on the relationship between UCLA's work on prime number theory and the rise of US Pop Idol. Snakybus, bassist, taking little rest, has been busy completing his first fully improvised series of operettas, in Portugiese, using nothing but kitchen untensils, a harmonica and the San Diego Philharmonic Orchestra. Guitarist, The Epic Highway, spent three months in Sweden studying their world famous method of socialism and examining ways that its basic pillars could be adapted and applied to the world of laid back angular guitars. Vocalist and Guitarist R spent many a spring afternoon on campus at College of Avionics and Philosophy in New York City, where he resumed his on/off post as guest lecturer and student councilor.

    All this has lead to a new found energy, palpable as the band regrouped at their top secret Rehearsal Cave deep in the bowels of Capratonic House. Rumors and speculation of a new tougher tighter sounding Tone leaked out, share prices rocketed in New York, entire Asian banking communities collapsed, even an increased confidence in air travel was reported in many sectors.

    And so Caprtone return, balanced, tougher and more Swedish (yet also less Swedish) in outlook then ever before.

    Soon Conor, well soonish.

    The rest of the band are currently in Geddy Lee's personal studio, on the shores of lake Michigan, painstakingly double tracking every single instrument, drumbeat and vocal on the entire album note by note.

    Trying to give it an even more tactile feel to the record.

    I have to admit, I thought at first this was a tad excessive, but on hearing the first three months of work, I have to say it's such a worthwhile thing to do.

    Correction, all the band are in Michigan, except Sankybus

    We're using the new Microsoft Bass-Bot '03 to do his bass parts.
    Not only are the results far superior... he's actually funnier the Snaky too!

    We love you Mike!

    I saw Capratone at the Stoat/MDR gig in February or whenever and I liked what I saw. The music was ok too.

    No, seriously, Capratone are quality.

    Best of luck with these gigs. I will be on a parasol getting lobsterised in spain when these are on, so bummer for me.

    Do you have a website, or is it just the way you're sitting?
