‘…They’ve had a song banned on the Tom Robinson show and managed to sell a copy their EP to a member of the Scottish Parlimant…Son Capson are bloody dangerous. Bred in the belly of Wales, they have quickly established themselves as a ferocious live band, Radio1 DJ, Bethan Elfyn even said,’ Son Capson are something else!’
My introduction to Son Capson was at Aberystwyth Flood Relief Benefit (Floodstock), and yes indeed they were truly something else. when I saw their set up of two Key players, one bass guitarist and a drummer, I knew we were in for a treat of something quite different to what we had already been listening to that day. Within moments of starting the band created an energy to what was quite an empty room, leading us through quite a jovial set. Their performance, where a key player lost his shoe, a keyboard nearly fell off its stand, and a very military drummer, was full of high energy, making us bounce in our seats along with their very punky/reggae, comical songs.
Their performance grabbed my attention, that I knew I had to check out their recently released album, And I’m Rex. And believe me it wasn’t a disappointment. Downloaded at a cost of your choice, yes that’s right you can choose how much you want to pay for the album, you are given twelve upbeat jovial tracks, dealing with the subjects of; Tomato Soup, I prefered my life before facebwk and Evil Vicar, but my favourite has to be, Vertical India is coming.
Their album, And I’m Rex, like their live performance, is a high energy rhythmic lyrical stand-up. You’ll find yourself singing, bopping and swaying along with every track. With a very punk reggae feel to their music, it is very different to your every day radio listings, but catchy all the same. Well worth the download, and by the end of it you’ll feel you’ve just done a workout!
So make sure you don’t miss out on this Welsh infestation of brilliance!
