EARLY WORKS (2002-2006)

Sleepwalkers Local (formerly Sleepwalkers Local 242) is the working title for pieces created by Grant E Capes.  Pieces mostly revolve around looped guitar, drums and/or keys, with erratic additions of more guitars, keys and (god help us) voice.

“Whilst checking out the brilliant House of Alchemy label make sure to also place a order for Grant Capes (VxPxC, Thousands) solo projectSleepwalkers Local 242. His Dreamlands sounds a bit like the title suggests, shimmery guitar washes and massive drone clouds that do just about everything they can to re-unite with the horizon.”… from Broken Face e-zine

“Of all the ways improv can be approached, for me it is through the guitar that the most powerful spontaneous expressions take place. Call that part of my rock bias, or warping from one too many Keiji Haino records, but there it is. Here, a solo venue for guitarist Grant Capes, the instrument cries, drones and pokes holes in the space given to it.

With good improvisation, you can feel the moments when the artist on the tightrope is about to slip, but rights himself and takes off into something unexpected even for him. There are many such successful risks taken on this record. In one fifty minute slab of fretwork, Capes covers a wide range of emotional territory, most of it delivered with passion and expressive chord progressions. He plays inside a groove as well as provides a way into the grooves. Not as holy as Haino, but often in the foyer. 7/10” – from Foxy Digitalis
