about

What started as a sardonic reference to the cheesy phrase "see you later, Alligator", turned into a ferocious animal, relentless, waiting to tear you limb from limb. A near perfect resemblance to this time of pandemic we find ourselves in - everything is going to shit, but shit is still funny.

Alligator is a sonic explosion of balls to the walls punk rock & roll, provocative pop sensibility & sinking, grinding sludge. It was inspired by the ruthless actions & reactions to orbiting the vicious virus spreading across the planet, from the effects of isolation to the political impacts, to the death of people near & dear to us.

The first recording dates just so happened to fall in the first week of South Africa’s (seemingly never- ending) lockdown. In the months that followed the mindset and songs started to change, some were dropped, new ones were written, and others became more relevant than ever. It is composed of eight high energy, pedal to the metal songs that Andi describes and “barely an album” - with a cheeky wink and his tongue in his cheek.

The album was co-produced and recorded by the band in a few days, spread over a few months from late 2020 to early 2021, with Evert Snyman (Pollinator, Ruff Majik) from Pariah Studios; in the co- producer’s driving seat, and in charge of the recording, mix and master.

The artwork for the album (titled Alligatoridae - anthocyanin watercolour painting) was created by Kreatier Kreations, a sister duo of mixed media artists. Their process is incredibly unique, using boiling water to extract anthocyanins (water-soluble compounds that belong to a bigger class of chemicals known as flavonoids) from flower petals. Anthocyanins are responsible for the colour of the flower petals, using compounds to alter the PH levels allows the colours to be manipulated to virtually any in the spectrum.

Alligator, Caution Boy’s 10th full length release, and their 1st to be recorded as a full band, faced numerous delays and was shaped into what it is today by the nature and surroundings it was born into. It is set for release on the 10th of September 2021 with South Africa’s most exciting alternative music label Mongrel Records.

Alligator is dedicated, in loving memory, to Ronel and Anette Cilliers.

about

Caution Boy Pretoria, South Africa

Somewhere between the highway & the railroads of the Moot (Pretoria, South Africa), smothered by its suburban industrial coma, came a one man army (Andi Cappo), filled with punk screams, stoner basslines, pop grooves & screeching guitars.
The band now consists of Treveshan Pather (bass), Archie Kinnon (drums) & Andi Cappo (vocals & guitar).
