Alright the Captain are due to release their debut album 'SNIB' early next month and I'm glad to be able to offer you my incites on the first listen to this slab of genius, which is exactly what it is. The band tour the U.K. at the end of February but currently there's no date in Glasgow so I intend to write very nice things in order to entice a show up here in the cold Scottish air. Before I talk about the music itself, it's worth pointing out the brilliant album cover with it's wolves and skulls looking like a piece of complex graffiti. Bravo on that one boys. There is so much going on in this album that it's difficult to talk about absolutely everything without playing down how brilliantly conceived and pieced together it all is. SNIB draws a lot of comparisons to bands spanning a wide range of genres but as a body of work it's completely original, and quite honestly you've never heard anything like it.
