Captain My Captain

Captain My Captain is the second and final studio album by the American queercore band Team Dresch. It was released on June 4, 1996 by both Chainsaw Records and Candy Ass Records.

Recording and release[edit]

Captain My Captain was recorded in November 1995 at John and Stu's Place in Seattle, Washington and produced by John Goodmanson.[1] Singer and guitarist Jody Bleyle stated that a lot of her writing on the album had to do with a "physical and emotional breakdown" she had before its recording. At the time, she recalled that the band's focus on politics and self-defense went "far beyond being an obsession", especially during an eight-week tour to support the Free to Fight project.[2] The album was released on June 4, 1996 by Chainsaw Records and Candy Ass Records.[3]
