If we were to tell you that a band of NYC teenagers who met in 1979 decided to form a band influenced by Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Eno, Chrome and released a privately pressed record, it would be enough to pique your interest. When you find out the band consisted of a future Supreme Court Justice judge for Arizona, a professor of Slavic studies, a musician/documentarian whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge, and an A-list world-famous actor the story goes from being about another rare, privately pressed recording that's been re-discovered, into something that's pretty incredible. Captured Tracks is thrilled to announce the reissue of Capital Punishment's 1982 sole LP 'Roadkill'. For a band of high school weirdos who actually got their shit together enough to make a completely uncommercial album with no means to sell it shows a lot of determination, persistence and perhaps insanity. But it's always those kinds of weirdos who go on to do great things, just ask Judge Peter Swann, Professor Peter Zusi, Kriss Roebling and Ben Stiller. Red vinyl version.

Also available: ROADKILL (CD), ROADKILL (BLACK) (LP).
