Best of Bandcamp: Caterpillarmen

If you like your prog raw, quirky and a little bit tongue-in-cheek then look no further than these exuberant young chaps. Channeling the spirit of Samla Mammas Manna (with a splash of King Crimson, Zappa, etc. etc.), they’ve found a sound which is both indebted to the weirder excesses of prog rock’s heydey whilst also keeping things punchy and energetic enough to save it from accusations of unbridled nostalgia.

They put out not one but two albums last year, both of which are superb. The tight-arses amongst you may want to start with the pay-what-you-want self-titled offering, but if you dig that then be sure to cough up a few quid for the equally excellent and much lengthier “Babycum” album.
