"The best in British Reggae" David Rodigan



This is Captain Accident’s 4th album to date & delivers a fresh & uplifting brand of soulful ska, roots & reggae music laced with dark lyrical content that is full of cutting social & political commentary. Good stuff indeed that is not to be missed.

Kevin Flowerdew - Do The Dog Music

"Bad Press” transports us effortlessly way back in time nearly half a century to the high water mark of old school roots reggae, dub and ska evoking the prophetic and soulful sounds of the likes of Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Burning Spear, Jimmy Cliff et al while lyrically we stay firmly in the now. Von Goloka - All Music Magazine


Musically, Captain Accident calls down the power of bands like UB40, The Toasters, Jimmy Cliff, The Wailers, Judge Dread, and Chris Murray. While predominantly influenced by reggae music, fans of a more traditional ska or rocksteady sound will also find a kindred spirit with Bad Press. At its heart, you’ll find plenty on there to dance to, but dig a little deeper and you’ll hear songs about love, politics, and social issues. Much like the roots reggae that inspired the album, the songs don’t shy away from hard hitting topics.
