City Roots Club pres.
Our second installment this year;
CAPTAIN ACCIDENT AND THE DISASTERS
'Captain Accident... Whoever you are... I Like it!'
- Sir David Rodigan
Captain Accident is a reggae/ska/soul artist who creates a unique blend of soulful lovers rock, roots reggae, ska, and dub at his home studio in Cardiff. Bringing this life on stage with the help of a collective of musicians known as “The Disasters” although in reality, they are far from disasters! The energetic live show is guaranteed to get people up and dancing. With soulful vocals, soaring twin guitars and a truly infectious groove, there’s no standing still when Captain Accident and his clumsy sidekicks hit the stage.
Captain Accident currently has 3 self produced albums under his belt: “Pick up the Microphone” (2010), “Slippin Up” (2013) and his most recent release “Wake & Break” (2016) which has received great reviews and praise, including that from the legendary Sir David Rodigan on his BBC Radio 1xtra Reggae Show.
Through intensive touring of the UK and Europe, numerous music videos, festival appearances and some high-profile radio airplay, more and more people are becoming aware of Captain Accident’s unique sound. With a national fan-base growing by the day and a live performance gaining so much momentum in terms of sound and energy, Captain Accident and The Disasters are becoming harder and harder to ignore on the UK reggae/ska circuit and further afield.
The band were invited to join reggae heroes Toots & the Maytals on a number of dates during their 2016 & 2017 UK tour - one date of which saw Captain Accident joining Toots onstage to perform Monkey Man on guitar with the band! Proving to be a good support for the pioneers of reggae, Captain Accident & the Disasters were asked to join the reggae heroes once again in 2018, this time for their Full UK schedule of 13 dates.
As well as Toots & the Maytals, Captain Accident & the Disasters have shared a stage with many of the biggest names in reggae & ska including: Less Than Jake, Aswad, The Skints, Prince Fatty & Horseman, Pama International, Mad Professor, Bad Manners, The Toasters, Sonic Boom Six, Neville Staple, Fishbone, David Rodigan and countless others as well as performing a song with none other than Suggs!
