The Madcaps hail from Rennes in western France and make the kind of jangle that instantly transports you to the west coast 1966 before even the first bar is out. With a passion for all things analogue they create a sound so authentic that it’s hard to believe this is a 2015 release and not a re-issue of some long lost gem. Their tremolo-rich ballads filled with vocal harmonies are sweet enough to move a German bulldozer to tears and serve as perfect seduction material.
Having overjoyed France with their 45 in April 2014, they return this year with a debut full length, unveiling a little more of their clear penchant for American garage, and the English beat music of the 60s. With the first UK single release selling out in just a day earlier this month it seems the world is thirsty for more and Super Fan were happy to oblige on label duties. Fans of Allah Las, Black Lips and The Kinks are sure to instantly fall for their charms. The Madcaps plan to prove yet again that Rennes is more than ever the bastion of tricolor garage. They tour Europe in October with a London date headlining the Super Fan first birthday party.
The self-titled album will be available on beautiful short run limited gold glitter cassette from 24.08.15.
