For those who came in late to the whole Capital City story, this Australian band fronted by a diminutive Israeli-born, Washington-raised Western Australian ball of energy, started in Perth in 2000. Their first EP “The God-Botherin’ Years”, recorded by Dr Alien Smith at Bergerk Studios in 2002, received great support from public radio and demon sales from the public. This release saw them win the WAMi award for Most Popular WA Punk Act and tour nationally with Aussie garage rock legends The Stems on their re-union tour at the start of 2003. The second EP, “Capital City vs The Bangkok Lady Boys”, also a Bergerk! product, was another collection of tracks celebrating love, life, hate, death and Thai dudes who decide to the contrary. People reacted well to the new release, with Triple J adding lead track “The Working Class Is After Us” to high rotation. Along the ride the band has supported the likes of Boss Hog, The Datsuns, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Buzzcocks, McLusky, Sons & Daughters and The Strokes plus ace Australian acts such as Beasts of Bourbon, Jet, The Drones, Spencer P Jones, Magic Dirt, Dallas Crane, The Meanies, Rocket Science, Sixfthick, The Tremors, Ground Components & You Am I.
