Dead Capo came out on January 1999 with the intention of making a free and instrumental music in which jazz, funk, swing, rock, psychobilly, cinema scores, etc, could be mixed without prejudgements. Some of their many influences are: John Zorn, Lounge Lizards, Captain Beefheart, Sun Ra, Funkadelic, Raymond Scott or Don Ellis. Music at least, in which "bastard" jazz, funk, black cinema scores and a touch of humour, live together.
The list of collaborators of Dead Capo is a luxurious one: Nacho Mastretta, Markus Breüss (Clónicos, OCQ, Scorecrackers, Mil Dolores Pequeños), Juan Tamayo (sax, flute, clarinet), Jorge Magaz (piano, keyboards), Tres (turntables), Manuel Morales (trumpet), Felipe Rodrigáñez (saxes) and Enrique Monleón (trombone).
"Díscolo" is the album of debut of this formation composed by Javier Adán (guitar), Javier Díez Ena (bass, double bass) and Javier Gallego (drums).
Dead Capo have performed at Primavera Sound 2003, EFEX Festival'03, Jazz Festivals of Ibiza, Getxo and Soto del Real 2003, Emociona Jazz 2002 and Cursos de Verano El Escorial 2001.
