Captain Accident – Bad Press Tour

8pm

Captain Accident are back at the Winchester gate as part of the Bad Press album tour on the 19th February 2022.

Doors 7.30pm. Tickets £8adv. Support to be announced.


“While predominantly influenced by reggae, fans of a more traditional ska or rocksteady sound will find a kindred spirit with Bad Press. At its heart, you’ll find plenty to dance to … but much like the roots reggae that inspired the album, the songs don’t shy away from hard hitting topics” BEARDED GENTLEMEN MUSIC

“An extraordinarily honest, personal, heartfelt, absorbing and hugely likeable slab of sound … transporting us effortlessly to the high-water mark of old school roots reggae, dub and ska evoking the prophetic and soulful sounds of Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer and Burning Spear. Bob would’ve approved, I think” ALL MUSIC

“Bad Press interweaves reggae, rocksteady and ska with boisterous bass and silky guitars to create a tapestry of seriously mellow music; yet there’s an edge here, for the lyrics contain heavy political commentary that add a sharp, smart overlay to the dulcet sounds” MEDIUM

“The best in British reggae” DAVID RODIGAN / BBC RADIO 1XTRA See less
