Album Notes

ORIGINAL MYSPACE BIO - a bit of history.
We started the band 8 years ago as friends but now we can't stand each other. Unfortunately, we are now deeply in debt so we have to stay together. You want to know what it's like to be in this band? It's hell. Plain and simple. About the only thing we actually agree on is this: Taco Bell + Stu the Bass Player = Death. 'Nuff said.

No show is too big nor small. You don’t even have to pay us. A sandwich and a hot shower works just as well. In addition to killer 110 decible extravaganzas, we're available to entertain on Play Dates, Bouncy Castle Birthdays and Old Age Home Movie Nights. Jeff – our scary rhythm guitarist - is really good at balloon animals and face painting. Believe it or not, the old folks really like it.

Call for special rates. (exception - we're not allowed into Chuck E Cheese anymore so other arrangements will have to be made. It’s really sad how a restraining order can put a crimp in your career.)

John Tiberius Capybara Vocals, Keyboards, Stage Craft, Annoying Delusions of Grandeur and Making Immature Faces During Band Photo Shoots.
Stu Capybara Bass and Unexpected Moments of Gregorian Chanting,
Petey Capybara Drums and African Percussion and that friggin' Glockenspiel he tries to work into every song,
Walter ‘Volume’ Capybara Lead Guitar, Unwieldy Foot Pedals and Attitude
Jeff Capybara Rhythm Guitar, Scary Tattoos and Intimidating Gestures

We had to dump our background singers: The Castinettes outside Rochester: Sorry ladies. But our loss is that Bowling Alley's gain.
And as far as Zohar – the guy with the turntables goes – we’ve already spoken with the authorities. Apparently, we’re not a ‘Band of Interest’ at this time. Have we ever been?

As for the rest of the characters and ‘musicians’ who have been in and out of this clown car of a band over the years...don't bother getting in touch. We don't have your stuff. In fact, we don't even have our stuff anymore. The van got stolen in Baton Rouge. So did Petey, our drummer. As of today, we are no more.

The Swingin’ Capybaras. January 2010.

UPDATE. 2012
Great news. A new version The Swingin’ Capybaras has risen. Lead by John Tiberius Capybara, scary guitarist Jeff and a group of people who’d rather not be named, the Capys have reformed. Mostly, this means that John finally remembered the password to the MySpace account and can do some free advertising for the band. They also have broken all ties with their previous label - Monkey’s Shouldn’t Play With Nail Guns Records and the Gag Order no longer applies.

And now, they’re happy to announce that they’ve released their first Album in years. Joining their previous releases....

Live In the Car at the not proud of - both musically and legally. Although, we all agree, the part where the security guard threw K-Mart Parking Lot himself on the hood of Jeff's car is pretty funny.

...the band has created Incidental Meanderings. Music inspired by The Bug Barians®. It’s a series of musical impressions based on John T. Capybara love of the timeless children’s book: “The Bug Barians®”. It’s music that’s challenging, ethereal and for some, unnecessary. Perhaps. But it’s music that won’t be denied. Easily meandering through any number of musical genres, “Incidental Meanderings” is a true artistic statement by The Swingin’ Capybaras. But don’t let us tell you. Buy it and judge for yourself. Not to be listened to while medicated or dabbling with Ambien.
