 Captain Ahab (6 Albums, 25 Tracks)

Artist

LOCATION:Los Angeles, CA
MEMBERS:
  • Jonathan Snipes
  • Jim Merson

Captain Ahab is an electropop duo based in Los AngelesCalifornia. They refer to their sound, a DIY take on dance music, as ravesploitation. The band is made up of Jonathan Snipes and Jim Merson. A typical Captain Ahab live performance consists of playback of recorded beats from a computer and vigorous singing by both members of the band. While performing, members of Captain Ahab are usually partially undressed, covered in sweat, and constantly forcing themselves into physical contact with members of the audience. While their lyrics are satirically misogynistic, their live performance is thoroughly homoerotic.
