"this irish based outfit return with their second vinyl release. this new ep follows on from their stunning debut not not is fine from 2006. the ep opens up with the original version of we are men with a big pulsating punk funk bass riff providing the backbone for a really uptempo piece of no wave complete with eighties synth action. richie egan aka jape gives the track a bit of eighties electro pop treatment on his remix with a big throbbing drum machine and hypnotic looped vocal treatments. that boy tim opens up the second side with lots of added funky guitar sounds. the decal remix closes the ep and its probably the pick of them for me. its a superb piece of heaving guitar heavy industrial space rock sounding a bit like godflesh with a punk funk fixation. its all very hypnotic and quite dark and menacing too. december 2008" - Road Records

"Well it's about time! Cap Pas Cap have starved us of releases in 2008, but thankfully they've managed to squeeze one in before the end of the year. So, was it worth the wait? Well, in a word, yes! New single We Are Men is textbook CPC, but still utterly new. The production is slightly different from the excellent Not Not is Fine EP of last year. More polished, not as raw and slightly more electronic. The trademark hooks, unique vocal and robust rhythm section are still intact. The only difference here is that they've invited some of their mates to the party - Decal, thatboytim and Jape. Mr Egan's 4-to-the-floor rework gets our top vote, but there is something interesting in all of the reinterpretations." - Totally Dublin

"Cap Pas Cap return with a new 12" release containing new song ‘We Are Men’ a fast-paced tune which zips out of the speaker with distorted bass and an urgency not heard from this band before. This really leaves us salivating for more and for bonus points, not a cowbell to be heard.

What really makes this a must-have release are the three remixes accompanying the tune. From the subtle driving remix by thatboytim, a banging electro workout from Jape (fast becoming the best Irish remixer going if this and his remixes for Fight Like Apes and SEBP are anything to go by) and an elongated and slowed down space-rock remix from Decal." - State Magazine

"The single itself is a solid, thumping dance-rock number with a throbbing Klaxons drumbeat, yelping vocals and enough kazoo/guitar/indie female backing vocals to ensure this would be a welcome banger in any dark club on a cheeky Tuesday night booze-up." - Drop D


CAP PAS CAP mix hyperactive shape shifting motorik pop chants with pounding drums, fuzzed up drones and no wave led synths.

In 2006 the band released the critically acclaimed Not Not Is Fine EP on Skinny Wolves Records in Europe and Rally/Klee in Japan. 'A breathtaking debut release, their love of krautrock is conspicuous; jagged riffs with clean edges, and clever, repetitive melodies abound.' Totally Dublin Magazine.

The EP sold out completely in weeks.

Through 2006 & 2007 CAP PAS CAP embarked on tours with The Go! Team, Crystal Castles and Erase Errata and performances with No Age, Foals, These New Puritans and The Gossip.

Dazed & Confused magazine said at the time 'CAP PAS CAP occupy that awkward no-man's-land where Sonic Youth, Talking Heads and !!! might get it on at Frank Zappa's slumber party' while X Mist Germany said: 'CAP PAS CAP remind me of anything that was ever fascinating about Post-Punk and No Wave, hints of bands like Bush Tetras, Pylon, early Sonic Youth..'

In 2008 CAP PAS CAP released a split 7'' with Marnie Stern (Kill Rock Stars) on Hidden Hive Records and now prepare to unveil radically new material on a series of limited vinyl only pressings recorded with Al O'Connell (who has worked with The Rapture and Klaxons).

The first 12'' We Are Men is released on November 29th on Skinny Wolves Records with remixes by Jape, Decal and thatboytim
