"Als hätte Zappa statt Joe's Garage Futurama vertont", Unlce Sally's Seit ihrem historisch einwandfrei verbuchten Gründungstag am 1.1.2000 beglücken Captain Zorx die Welt mit ihrer ganz eigenen Vorstellung von ordentlicher Partymusik.

Ausgerüstet mit dem Arsenal der klassischen Rockband, streifen unsere vier interstellaren Helden durch die Musikgeschichte und dringen über die reine Parodie hinaus in die Welt der musical martial arts vor. Ob Soul, Funk, Death Metal oder barocke Choräle – Captain Zorx jonglieren mit Bruchstücken ihrer eigenen musikalischen Vorlieben und fügen sie zu etwas Neuem zusammen. Die berüchtigte “musikalische Differenz”, die schon so manche Band das Leben gekostet hat, grinst bei dieser Band groß und fett von allen Fahnen.
Miniatur-Epen, vorgetragen mit einem sichtbaren Hang zur Theater-Performance.

"Ein echtes Antidepressivum"

************************************************

Risen from the ruins of an underground ska-band in 2000, Captain Zorx are Berlin's uncrownedkings of Disco Metal from Outer Space. Whether in full rockin' glory or cosy 'n unplugged: The genre-mashing bastard fusion sounds of Captain Zorx take styles as diverse as Rock, Metal, Funk, Old Skool, Bossanova and Disco and deliver them death blows. Firmly in the footsteps of greats such as Zappa, Mr Bungle and Ween, the men of Zorx bring the (sometimes embarrassing) sincerety of Lionel Richie and Metallica to the mash-up, pushing the music beyond parody and into the realm of musical marial arts. Their songs are weird, cartoon-like stories about little boys getting lost at the fairground, viagra-experiments gone awry, the heavenly salvation of a herb smoking janitor and of course their eponymous hero: Captain Zorx himself. Their latest release "Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings" is a musicalversion of Captain Zorx' biggest adventure so far, the interstellar quest for the mysterious Maps of the Sea Kings of old...
