Captain Oats is a Dutch band formed in the summer of 2006 by Thomas Trip. It all started with a couple of songs he wrote for a Dutch band called 'De Rijpe Peren'. While the band was slowly falling apart in the summer, he wrote a couple of songs and called the project Captain Oats, referring to both the comic heroe and Seth's plastic horse in the O.C. series.
After recording 'Waking Up In Santa Monica' and 'The Getaway' (using multiple audio tracks) he recieved many response, so he decided to recruit some guys to play in Captain Oats.
Today, eight songs are available at the official website and Bouke Hofma (drums) and Ernst Noordraven (bass and former member of 'De Rijpe Peren') are going to play (at least temporary) at some shows in November of this year.
