One of my favorite songs of all time. I used to listen to live bootlegs of it back when there was no official studio recording, because the band had broken up. This version is literally a dream come true.
Favorite track: Driving Spain Up A Wall.
City Of Caterpillar’s highly sought after song “Driving Spain Up A Wall” is finally available. This 11 minute epic was never properly recorded during the band’s initial existence and only a few live recordings of the song from 2002 – 2003 have existed up until now.
“Driving Spain Up A Wall” has been a long awaited missing piece of the band’s discography, but was recently recorded in their hometown of Richmond, VA and was mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden Studio.
The B-Side of this EP is “As The Curtains Dim (little white lie)”, which was originally recorded during the same sessions as City Of Caterpillar’s self titled LP in 2002.
Both songs brilliantly capture the restrained and explosive intensity that City Of Caterpillar helped to define as a sound in the early 00’s, merging the styles of post-rock and shoegaze with punk and hardcore.
