A future Arizona Supreme Court Justice, a professor of Slavic Studies, a documentarian whose family built the Brooklyn Bridge, and actor Bill Stiller walk into a room. It’s the late 70s in NYC and the band of teenagers recorded a wildly crafty industrial post-punk album equipped with a haunting and gruesome album cover. Roadkill is the rediscovered and reissued record by Capital Punishment and has been reintroduced to those appreciative of weirdo art by the masters at Captured Tracks. At times it’s eerie and spacey, and at other times folky or driving with an outsider, Riz Ortalanian strut.
