Before he was an A-list movie star working on Zoolander 2, Ben Stiller was the drummer in a high school hardcore band, probably just to annoy his parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara.
The band was called Capital Punishment, which is pretty much the punkest possible name a high school band can have, and they self-released an album called Roadkill in 1982. Rumors of this band have circulated for years until Brooklyn record label Captured Tracks decided to ask Stiller and his bandmates (including a current Arizona State Supreme Court justice!) if they could re-release the album.
In a press release, the label called Capital Punishment’s music “Beefheartian, Gong-afied freak-funk that needs to be heard instead of explained”, but you can listen for yourself since they premiered the first track on Pitchfork.
