If I were to tell you that a band of NYC teenagers who met in 1979 decided to form
a band influenced by Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Eno, Chrome and released
a privately pressed record, it would be enough to pique your interest. When you
find out the band consisted of a future Supreme Court Justice for Arizona, a
Professor of Slavic Studies, a Musician/Documentarian whose family built the
Brooklyn Bridge, and an A-list world-famous actor the story goes from being about
another rare, privately pressed recording that's been re-discovered, into something
that's pretty incredible. Captured Tracks is thrilled to announce the reissue of
Capital Punishment's 1982 sole LP Roadkill. For a band of high school weirdos who
actually got their shit together enough to make a completely uncommercial album
with no means to sell it shows a lot of determination, persistence and perhaps
insanity. But it's always those kinds of weirdos who go on to do great things - just
ask Ju dge Peter Swann, Professor Peter Zusi, Kriss Roebling and Ben Stiller. "I was
in a band in high school -- it was called Capital Punishment, and it was sort of a post
punk-neo-goth-urbanexperimental band... I was sort of the Ringo of the band." - Ben
Stiller on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
