Sydney based prog freaks Captain Kickarse and the Awesomes have just released a full album of B-sides and experimental tunes entitled Non Practising Pagans. The record showcases a very different side of the band – ambient textures, short arrangements – yet it is still classic Captain Kickarse, with the band’s unique character shining through.
The album features the single Don’t Wake Vincent and is available now through Bird’s Robe Records http://birdsrobe.bandcamp.com/album/non-practising-pagans
The band, who earlier this year toured with Japanese legend Tatsuya Yoshida, have postponed work on their debut full length studio album (expected in 2012) and are currently on hiatus.
They are renowned for their explosive (and sometimes destructive) live shows, with one of their more memorable performances earlier this year in Sydney captured on YouTube (below).
