A quest for food and chatting to various folk outside meant that I missed most of Fahran, but there was no way I was going to miss the next band on. Captain Horizon played one of our CackBlabbath Presents shows in Birmingham earlier in the year, and on the strength of that performance (and on the insistence of the rest of the CackBlabbath team) they will be joining us in Wakefield next Feb for Twitrfest III, but this was my first chance to see them in the flesh..
Captain Horizon have built a reputation as one of the best unsigned bands in the UK, and from the moment they took to the stage it was obvious that the reputation is well deserved. Lead by the irrepressible Whitty (resplendent in his Dakesis t-shirt) CH pack in an unbridled bouncy energy that few can match. I’m sure Whitty spent as much time in the crowd as on the stage, seriously, this guy is one of the best frontmen you will ever see.
Peace Love and Bananas indeed.
