Cap N Jazz
Cap'n Jazz is one of the most influential indie emo bands their is. They definatly have some history and by not only creating a foundation for the scene they have also since moved on to other bands who have stabilized it later on. Cap'n Jazz has recorded many singles on different labels and released only one full length alblum; Burritos, Inspiration Point, Fork Balloon Sports, Cards in the Spokes, Automatic Biographies, Kites, Kung Fu, Trophies, Banana Peels We've Slipped on and Egg Shells We've Tippy Toed Over—better known as Shmap'n Shmazz—on the tiny Man with Gun label. They broke up in mid 1995 right after the release of their full lenth alblum. In 1998 Jade Tree put together a compilation double-disk cd titled Analphabetapolotholgy which had all previously recorded works on one source.
The make up of Cap'n Jazz is Tim Kinsella (vocals); Samuel Zurick (bass guitar); Mike Kinsella (drums, vocals); Victor Villareal (guitar, vocals); and Davey von Bohlen (guitar, vocals from 1994–95).
Since the break-up the members of the band have moved on to other bands, some more important than others; most notably. Make Beleive, The Promise Ring, American Football, Owls, Ghosts and Vodka, Joan of Arc and Owen
Earlier this year they reunited and have since played shows in july and have dates set for summer and fall of this year.
