Capital City

It’s actually bordering on neglicence how long it’s taken me to put together this collection of Capital City records. To be honest I was hesitant to upload these because I hoped they’d get back together and record more of them. At the time of writing this it’s been 6 years since they called it quits, so here we go.

CAPITAL CITY – consisting of founding members Sam Scherr and Chris Pierucci along with recent inductees Jake Snell and Kate Mills – are Western Australia’s favourite exponents of punk-rock rhythm and blues.

For those who came in late to the whole Capital City story, this Australian band fronted by a diminutive Israeli-born, Washington-raised Western Australian ball of energy, started in Perth in 2000. Their first EP “The God-Botherin’ Years”, recorded by Dr Alien Smith at Bergerk Studios in 2002, received great support from public radio and demon sales from the public. This release saw them win the WAMi award for Most Popular WA Punk Act and tour nationally with Aussie garage rock legends The Stems on their re-union tour at the start of 2003. The second EP, “Capital City vs The Bangkok Lady Boys”, also a Bergerk! product, was another collection of tracks celebrating love, life, hate, death and Thai dudes who decide to the contrary. People reacted well to the new release, with Triple J adding lead track “The Working Class Is After Us” to high rotation. Along the ride the band has supported the likes of Boss Hog, The Datsuns, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Buzzcocks, McLusky, Sons & Daughters and The Strokes plus ace Australian acts such as Beasts of Bourbon, Jet, The Drones, Spencer P Jones, Magic Dirt, Dallas Crane, The Meanies, Rocket Science, Sixfthick, The Tremors, Ground Components & You Am I.

Here is my collection of Capital City records. They did a couple other things I don’t have but will try to track down. I think they were a fucking amazing band and whilst I hate to use that age old cliche of “they should have been huge”, they should have. It seems Sam is now playing in ‘The Macho Men’.
