When Ben Stiller was a teenager, he played drums in a quirked-out punk band called Capital Punishment. The trio released one album, 1982’s Roadkill, a piece of music that freely employs both fake British accents and Captain Beefheart scraggle-growls. The album’s songs found their way to YouTube, and last year, word got around that Stiller was in talks to release the album. Today, we get word that Captured Tracks is planning to reissue Roadkill. Below, listen to Stiller telling Howard Stern. Also, listen to a couple of songs from Roadkill and try to tell me they don’t sound like an even-more-out-of-it Foxygen.
Thanks for the shout out, @RedHourBen…looking forward to this! https://t.co/0Zzyx4S39z
