Caught Ship developed from the Ben Pat, a.k.a Ben & Pat, two strong men with a mutual enjoyment of sweet hip hop beats, delay pedals. Deciding they wanted to collaborate, they moved interstate, starved, slept underneath stairs, had their gear stolen and somewhere on the journey developed an intense bond that has allowed them to read each others thoughts and focus towards constantly rethinking their perceptions of their “sound” and themselves – always pushing each other further into the ether.

Later adding Jon and Kahli, Caught Ship continued to develop their sound; and have since been working towards carving their own style in a live setting. They aim mostly for possession by wise and calm spirits, through rhythms and repetitions. They play with bands they like and are friends with and are very polite to talk to.

Caught Ship appear on ‘New Weird Australia, Volume Five‘ and ‘Edition One: Start Dencing Dad, Start Dencing
