Before 'Simple Jack', before 'Gaylord Focker', even before 'Derek Zoolander', Ben Stiller was once in a Post-Punk Band named Capital Punishment. The NYC indie teenage band released their debut album 'Roadkill' in 1982 which is now being remastered and expanded as a reissue LP this coming September.
The band has an interesting list of members: Kriss Roebling's ancestors built the Brooklyn Bridge; Peter Swann went on to be a Supreme Court Justice for the state of Arizona; Peter Zusi moved to the UK and became a Professor of Slavic Studies at University College London. And then there was the band's drummer, the kid dressed up like Che Guevara on the front cover of Roadkill—future Hollywood A-lister Ben Stiller.
Attached to the 'Roadkill' rerelease announcement, Capital Punishment was kind enough to post their single 'Muzak Anonymous' from the album. Listen and enjoy below.
