AN ESSEX and East London band are preparing to release their debut album later this month – but you might either love it or hate it.
Guitarist and vocalist Steven Marriner of The Capers, said: “We all think it is a good album, because it doesn’t sound like anything else out there.
“But it is a bit like marmite so it means that you will either love it or hate it.”
But you can judge the album, titled While Crooks Pull Capers, yourself at a launch party today (Friday, February 18) at The Alley Cats in Denmark Street, Dagenham.
The three-piece band, who describe their music as upbeat pop tunes and melodies, started working on their first ever album as a challenge to the current music scene.
Steven said: “We recorded it because at the moment there is not much music out there that we actually like so we thought that we would make our own.”
The band, which also consists of Stuart Dean on drums and vocals and Colin Breavington on bass guitar and vocals, have been influenced by 60s groups like The Beatles and The Kinks.
The band originally formed three years ago and were originally a five-piece before two members left last year.
Since then they have spent most of their time performing in pubs and club.
They will give free copies of the album to the first 150 people at the club.
Steven said: “First we want to thank all the people who have come down and supported us over the years and we have invited a lot of industry people.
“We are really hoping to get to the next level and for us that would be to get some form of a management company interest.”
