Captain America

Produced in 1991, Captain America was one of the rings to emerge in the flourishing milieu centred over the Scottish town of Bellshill. Vocalist/guitarist Eugene Kelly and bass participant James Seenan had been former members from the Vaselines, as the primary line-up also highlighted BMX Bandits guitarist Gordon Eager and Teenage Fanclub drummer Brendan O’Hare. The last-named was changed by Andy Bollen immediately after the quartet’s inception. Captain America finished two 12-inches EPs, Captain America and Fire On, both which revealed a penchant for distorted electric guitar work, but improvement was halted when Marvel Comics, web publishers from the Captain America name, threatened litigation. The C&A firm also objected towards the band’s usage of their trading logo design on Fire On. Strain on the music group was elevated when Kurt Cobain was broadly pictured putting on a Captain America T-shirt, and having jettisoned Seenan and Bollen, Kelly and Eager re-emerged with a fresh tempo section and a fresh name – Eugenius.
