Cap'n Jazz and Owls Reuniting?
Published Dec 09, 2009With Sunny Day Real Estate, Jawbox and, most importantly, Pavement officially reunited, it only makes sense that more icons of '90s indie world would be getting back together. If the rumours are true, the next group on the docket are influential emo rockers Cap'n Jazz.
When they split in 1995, members of Cap'n Jazz went on to perform in Joan of Arc, Owen, Make Believe, Owls, American Football and many other projects. Now, Punknews points to an article at Indie Rock Reviews that says the members of the band, Tim Kinsella, Mike Kinsella, Sam Zurick, Victor Villarreal and Davey von Bohlen, have been practising together in preparation for a tour next year.
The site also reports that Cap'n Jazz offshoot Owls will also be reforming, but under a different moniker due to a dispute with their former label, Jade Tree.
While they only cite a source close to the band, and don't use any real quotes, the thought of both Cap'n Jazz and Owls returning are exciting prospects. It also means we're just a few '90s bands away from that Fugazi reunion we're all so desperate for.
