Bio & Information

Dead Captain
Northwest England
Indie / Indie Rock
Manchester
Dead Captain has been brought to life by Dan Adams, a Manchester multi-instrumentalist and music-man-for-hire who’s recently been busy as part of The Cornelius Crane. Ably assisting him is writer and illustrator, Dunstan Carter.

The Dead Captain project came about after the duo found a shoe box outside a pub in Ashton-Under-Lyne filled with scribbled notes, drawings and grainy recordings on old VHS tapes. The duo started asking friends and family about what they thought of the find and who the stuff might belong to. Some suggested it was the work of a weird recluse who wanted to remain unknown but leave some kind of odd legacy. Other friends reckon it might be the work of a man known locally as Old Scotty. A middle aged soak who frequents some of the pubs in town and tells wild tales of a youth spent fighting in some of the world's most notorious war zones. If it is him, the chances of getting anything out of him are supposedly nigh on impossible as half of the stuff that comes out of his mouth is indecipherable these days, and the other half is either angry gibberish or morose monologues about the death of the North.

The one note that does make total sense came taped to the underside of the shoe box, it simply reads, "do something with this". So that's what Dead Captain are doing - letting people have a ramble inside the mind of a Northern enigma and breathing some fresh life into the madness
