3 Badgers from Northern Ireland, Birmingham and Ilkeston met in the midlands and decided to make loud experimental/instrumental music together calling themselves ALRIGHT THE CAPTAIN.
Currently based on the mainland but always focusing on playing shows both in the UK and Ireland as much as possible and will release their debut album through Field Records in 2010
ATC have played with awesome bands like Mono, Zu, Holy F**K, ASIWYFA, Pneu, Mutiny on the bounty, shapes, Blakfish,Maybeshewill, Adebisi shank and many more.
"The instrumental rock stylings of Alright the Captain veer from ‘jazz odyssey’ moodscapes to fist-making stadium-rousers" - CultureNorthernIreland
"Alright The Captain interlace complex and obscure melodies with some extremely sensible song structures" - Drop-D.ie
“Experimental rock, which bursts from trippy melodic surf to ‘all guns blazing’ progressive and aggressive rock in moments!” - The maze
"enveloping math-rock, chock full of huge noises and complex structures" - Leftlion
"the varying time patterns and distortions used give the band a wider scope for avoiding repetitive sounds that haunt some bands" - The Silent Ballet
“heat fuzzed out surf to twisted funk to stylised angular heaviness. Something for everyone who likes having their cerebral cortexes turned inside out while they wait!” - Sweeping the nation
