Most songs from the EPs were recorded in one take.
Everything on the EPs are exactly as it sounded on the night.
FREE DOWNLOAD and streaming available from Soundcloud
Paper Cut is the first single from a 9-song session which was recorded on 1st November 2011.
The new single was recorded completely live in studio.
Captain Kennedy's new release has them show us exactly how the unabashed band sound.
Four musicians locked in tight playing live a set of songs that show off the 4-pieces new grit and rawness.
Each song on the release is in the order which the band put them down them on the night, and it's possible to actually hear the room warm up throughout the record.
EP due for release in the coming month.

I was going to give a huge run down of all the things we did for the release of the album, but I'm just not in the mood for reminiscing.

Captain Kennedy officially release their eagerly anticipated debut album “See You When I See You” on Monday 11th October 2010. The album, produced, recorded and mixed by well renowned producer Mudd Wallace (Therapy?, Andy White, Pat McManus) and mastered by Jon Astley at Close to the Edge (Led Zeppelin, The Who, Ash), sees the band play on their strengths, namely the ability to deliver a catchy, melodic tune whilst maintaining their edgy, raw sound, an enduring feature of Captain Kennedy’s live shows. The album cover also features original artwork by designer/artist Dermy McConaghy www.manchini.co.uk
The band released two singles from the album earlier this year, “Stretch That Penny / Sweetest Friend”, and “No Friend of Mine”, with both receiving widespread airplay and press attention.
The official album launch is scheduled for 11th October at Auntie Annies, Belfast with support coming from a number of the country’s finest acts including La Faro front-man Jonny Black, Americana artist Junior Johnson and Special Guests. A number of other gigs have been lined up across the country including Derry, Dublin, Cavan and Lurgan. Full details are available at www.captainkennedy.co.uk

"On April 5, seven-piece whiskey soaked troubadours Captain Kennedy release their new double A-Side single ‘Scratch That Penny’/’Sweetest Friend’ via all major download sites as a pre-cursor to their hugely anticipated debut record which comes out in the summer. Last month Hot Press became the first ones to hear the single besides the band (yes, get us) and both tracks really are songs to fall in love to and ‘Sweetest Friend’ in particular has greatness stamped all over it, so make sure you (virtually) pick it up.
