Captain Credible is the crazy-scientist project of Daniel Eugene Lacey-McDermott. A curious artist who emerged from Trondheim in 2008 and has been terrorizing audiences all over Europe ever since. Resurrected as a meta musical presence in a not-so-easily defined genre, he claims Aphex Twin, Sex Pistols and Aaron Carter have helped him form his own image. The Captain refers to his sounds as “filthy drunk beats bathing in a lake of melting synthesizers and old Nintendo cartridges”.
On a stage filled with home made electronics and songs about dead cats and pure code the Captain regales his listeners with epic adventures through time and space. With jaw dropping performances at festivals like Øya, Hove, by:Larm, Slottsfjell, Ragnarock (Milan), Pictoplasma (Berlin) as well as support tours for Casiokids, The Show Is The Rainbow and Slagsmålsklubben he might be considered underground, but is making waves in his own right. His debut EP ‘Planet of the Eternal Electro Breakdance Orgy’ was released on the small but credible Norwegian label How Is Annie Records (Youth Pictures, The Little Hands of Asphalt) and his second EP “Mountain Cloudboy” gained notoriety online.
October 2015 marks the release of the first EP in a series of three printed circuit boards on the Metronomicon Audio label. This EP “Dead Cats” Is unique in that each physical copy of the printed circuitboard is a different version of the EP. The last track on the ep “main.h” is generated by the microcontroller on the circuitboard using a bunch of complex 8bit maths equations and your download code. Simply plug in your headphones and accept the harsh reality that is the robot takeover of the cultural market. Release date: 23rd okt 2015.
“It’s all too easy for electronic music to lack character. Not so with Captain Credible. Our captain has AS much personality as he does bleeps and bass. And he’s surfing a bigger lysergic wave than most. A sonic stramash that sounds like Legowelt having a wank in the Warp offices. Whilst Trent Reznor watches and beats off too. Messy.” -Matt Bennett, Clash
«WOW! One man, a dozen homemade soundsources, a lot of dry wit and a handful of absurd stories. Add some killer beats and melodies and you end up with the funkiest, funniest and strangest one-man-band I’ve seen all summer! -Sigurd Vik, Nö Music
You can stop making music now… Once in a while you see something so amazing, crazy, intelligent and brilliant that you start to feel that all your own efforts are worthless
