Peter Capaldi Doctor Who

Peter Capaldi – The Doctor Was a Punk!

When I was a sophomore in high school, a friend of mine gave me a vinyl EP album by a punk group from Glasgow, Scotland. He had picked it up in a second-hand record shop in London while on vacation with his family. I thought the cover art was really cool, but I waited until I was home alone before I actually listened to it. There were only three songs on it, and I listened to the fucking thing so much it warped and broke the needle on my record player.

The Dreamboys EP cover

The album was Dreamboys. The EP was recorded live in Glasgow’s Hellfire Club in 1980. The audio quality isn’t the cleanest, and it’s a bit overmodulated – but the Bauhaus influence comes through loud and clear. Formerly known as The Bastards from Hell, the Dreamboys included Peter Capaldi on lead vocals and guitar, and Craig Ferguson on drums – however, for some unknown reason, Craig Ferguson isn’t playing on the record – instead, the drummer for that recorded gig was listed on the jacket as Robin Livsey.


Take a listen for yourself:

Raven Knighte
Raven Knighte is addicted to cheese and popsicles. Her favorite pastime is proving not only that it can’t rain all the time, but also that it actually can’t rain at all, by refusing to believe that rain exists. Her favorite quote is the letter that Brian wrote and reads at the end of the movie “The Breakfast Club,” because all five of those characters from the movie live in her head. She bathes in pixiedust daily, feeds clocks to crocodiles, and fights pirates. She has been known to take to the skies and crow loudly on occasion.
