Than It Used To Be by Caught Ship
In this, the first release for New Editions (a series of single artist releases curated by New Weird Australia), we present Melbourne’s CAUGHT SHIP and their 8-track EP ‘Start Dencing Dad, Start Dencing’. Following a split CDR (with WHYTE LIGHTNING) on Brisbane’s Bedroom Suck label and the Totem Tape release ‘What Does Water Need’, CAUGHT SHIP capture the wild, improvised spirit of their live appearances, editing recordings taken from four shows in Brisbane and Melbourne, and from their 2010 New Weird Australia show in Sydney. Re-sequenced, re-edited and re-contextualised, ‘Start Dencing Dad, Start Dencing’ is a visceral ride through the lo-fidelity underworld of Caught Ship’s proto-electronic and authentic punk aesthetic.
