For the past three years Captive State have been holed up in their Whitechapel studio, writing, recording
and developing sounds and songs.

Encouraged by Brian Eno’s enthusiastic response to their first demo Captive State’s Tom Bootle and Joseph Kennedy teamed up with Lemon Jelly’s Nick Franglen at the tail end of 2007 and found the perfect producer to bring life to their creation. The first fruits of these labours, which provides a sweet taster of what to expect, is a four song EP called, Elmore Grove. The place ‘Elmore Grove’, where these fruits spawned, is more imaginary than real transcending genre and generality.

Determined not to be confined to the studio Kennedy and Bootle have assembled an 8-piece live band that pits horns and accordions amongst their guitars and drums, effortlessly stretching the breadth of the recorded songs into the live arena. Captive State begin a two month residency at the Slaughtered Lamb in Farringdon from 28th March, full details of which are shown below on the myspace page.

Captive State’s name was taken, with permission, from the title of a book by writer George Monbiot.
