captain overdrive (2003, lp)
blackout steammachine (2007, lp)



it all began 1999, when the four of us met at university. started jamming and needed a name for the first gig - and we still love this name:
captain overdrive.
since the beginning it has never been discussed to add a singer - because there is no need for one. the songs are powerful and emotional enough without a human voice. our "lead singer" is - the trombone.
bands like defunkt, funkadelic or the jbs are an influence, but also r.a.t.m. or the red hot chili peppers. since we all come from different musical backgrounds it is hard to explain our style. we simply call it powerfunk.
since our beginnings we played different kinds of venues - rock festivals, jazz festivals, university parties, clubs of all styles, house parties,...
won the "german rockprize 2004" and were one of the german finalists for the "global battle of the bands" in 2006.
