Ένα σύντομο bio των Caterpillarmen…
Από το σπουδαίο progarchives.com:
The roots of CATERPILLARMEN, currently a four-piece Icelandic rock project that have positioned monkeys as something of a recurring theme in their music, got started, surprisingly, as a blues band. Ísak Örn GUÐMUNDSSON (guitar), Ingimundur GUÐMUNDSSON (keyboards), and Andri ÞÓRHALLSON (drums) had worked with the former blues-based bass player, but they had been fed up with the simplicity and tried to find a new bassist, for their progressive intention.
Zakarías Herman GUNNARSSON (bass) took the place as a new and progressive bassist, whom the other three had searched and considered much appropriate for their strong intention of creating progressive rock – this was the very beginning of CATERPILLARMEN.
They have got much influenced by some progressive bands like King Crimson, Yes, Gentle Giant, or Giraffes? Giraffes! In Christmas 2008 they finally started out playing, and gigged first in July 2009. For their first 5 or 6 months, they’d been in a poor rehearsal space in some industrial district in Reykjavik, a place called Höfði. So that it should be very natural that they had moved to another space where they could get more and more creative – in a little alleyway in Grettisgata, Reykjavik, they composed almost all of material for the self-titled album.
CATERPILLARMEN released their debut album «Adopt A Monkey» in October 2009 via Brak Records, and in March 2010 they immigrated into an old dubbing studio where they’re working and playing with other bands. Their second self-titled work was released in April 2010.
