In 1998, Captain Everything! released their first album
titled "Music By Idiots" on the Hectic Records label,
and had a total of 22 tracks. The cover of the album
featured an individual Polaroid-style picture of each
member of the band making funny faces. Around the same
time, they began touring with other similar bands like
NoComply, The Vandals, and Capdown all around the United
Their second full-length album was "Learning to Play
With..." and although it was originally issued through
Hectic Records in 2000, it was later re-issued through
Household Name Records, the label the band is still
with, in 2002. Captain Everything!'s second album had
songs with interesting titles like "My Girlfriend's Dad
Runs a Sweatshop", "The One Minute Love Song", and "M.I.L.F."
After two full-length albums and years of touring,
Captain Everything! collaborated with another punk band
called Route 215 to release an album called "Make The
Love Connection" in 2001. This album featured a total of
eight songs with four songs from each of the two bands.
The album was released on the 20 Deck Recordings label,
which has since went out of business.
Following the 2002 re-issue of "Learning To Play
With...", Captain Everything! released their third album
titled "It's Not Rocket Science" in 2003. This album was
important for the band since it came after a year of
constantly touring all over Europe with other popular
punk bands like Big D, Rx Bandits, Frenzal Rhomb, Nerf
Herder, and others. Touring for this long brought them
more fans than ever, and led to them getting more radio
play on UK's Radio One. This album was their best by far
at the time.
Following their 2003 success, Captain Everything! along
with bands Belvedere and Divit released a DVD through
Punkervision called "Live at the Camden Underworld". The
DVD featured full sets from all three bands, and was
filmed in London, England at the Camden Underworld.
In 2005, drummer Richard Phoenix left the band to play
the drums for band The Steal, who later split up in
2009. Replacing Phoenix was Blake Davies, who also later
became the drummer of the band The Social Club. Davies'
power as a drummer drove their successful single "Bomb
Song" from their 2006 "Buena Vista Bingo Club" album. It
was released by Household Name Records in the United
Kingdom in August of 2006 and by Pyropit Records in May
of 2006 in Japan. This album contained fifteen tracks,
and was fairly successful.
After touring for their 2006 album, the band became
mostly inactive and has not released a new album yet.
