KAPTAIN BLACK In Fertility (2005)
Kaptain Black, are a three piece band hailing from Cardiff. They pick up the
noise where McLusky and Ikara Colt recently left it and run it through the
Lemonheads’ melody machine. What comes out at the other end is described by
the boys themselves as ‘Blunktry’, which refers to an unholy alliance of
Blues, Punk and Country.
The outcome of ‘Blunktry’ is the debut album ‘In Fertility’.
The opening track ‘Coming Outside’ sets the mood and provides the perfect
preview of what to expect from Kaptain Black.
Dirty lyrics placed over even dirtier music reign the first song, providing the perfect rock and roll
anthem. This idea continues throughout the album with each song getting
progressively stronger. The single ‘Drone the Queen Bee’ although still
supplying the dirty lyrics and music, surprisingly is one of the weaker
tracks. Kaptain Black even manage to slip in a slow pace number ‘Matawhore’
and succeed to make it sound good.
The outcome of all the tracks placed together is the dirtiest, scuzziest
rock ‘n’ roll you could possibly ever imagine...
