CAPDOWN / LINK 80 : split 7"

Classic 4 track 7" inch


CAPDOWN and LINK80 recorded and mixed these four tracks on the last day of Link 80’s stay in Europe by John Hannon at Mushroom Studios (Hundred Reasons, Adequate Seven, Filaments). At 2am, immediately after finishing the recording, Link 80 drove direct to Heathrow to catch their flight to join the Plea for Peace tour in the US which started the next day.

4 great tracks: Link 80’s tracks were brand new, including the amazingly poppy ‘For the Crown’. Another new song ‘Incident’ was written in Scotland during that summer's UK tour when singer Ryan intervened to stop a kid getting beaten up in the street.
Capdown provide an updated version of ‘Ska Wars’ with a full brass section from Link 80, and one new one ‘Pound for the Sound’ which is already a live favourite.
