Some Details...

CAPTAIN DANGEROUS "are an explosive indie four-piece from Nottingham with outrageously catchy melodies and based around the classic English story telling with a frothy melange of quirk-pop influences... Listen and you'll hear, Pavement, the Cure and The Violent Femmes. Also plenty of Strokesy grindings and a pop harmonic approach recalling early Teenage Fanclub and The Wedding Present via Jarvis for loucheness & fantastic songs too." - Bugbear Bookings (Dublin Castle, Hope & Anchor)
