Captain Avery & the Cosmic Triceratops of Intergalactic Peace formed in a dive bar on a newborn sun in the Tarantula Helix Nebula many thousands of Earth years ago. Capsules of their recent recordings have spawned many genres on your planet: a comet containing one seminal album crash-landed into Nigeria in the middle of last century and was discovered by a boy named Fela Kuti; a vanishingly rare 7” recording of Captain Avery’s space-time shower songs found its way to London in the mid-1960s and birthed modern psychedelia; at a similar time in Brazil, Os Mutantes were visited by a dream in which a giant silver orb (a living metaphor for the Triceratops' Wild Sound) hummed sun-scattered, acid-baked melodies to the band which they went on to record and garner significant critical acclaim. In a recent interview with Pitchfork, when asked about these guerrilla nuggets that have apparently radically shifted the global musical culture of Earth, Captain Avery smiled laconically, and gave the obscure reply:

“Space is Psychedelic, baby. Space is psychedelic”

Captain Avery & the Cosmic Triceratops of Intergalactic Peace are a band of intergalactic sonic miscreants, currently stranded in Sheffield, Planet Earth with just a broken down spacecraft and a handful of drums, some blessed guitars and a saxophone from which to carve out new and ecstatic musical noises. They create blissed-out and melodic space rain to cleanse the chakras of sentient life forms through the cosmic medium of song. Expect Cosmic Afrobeat with flavours of Celestial High life and a smattering of Garage Rock. Expect Tropical Funk! Wild dancing! Psychedelic Klezmer! Collective singing! Aural abandon! Sequinned debauchery! Mutant Disco! Void Punk! Space Shanties!

Their goal is to bring Intergalactic Peace to the Universe through the healing vibrations of their cosmic music. Join them, Earthlings of Infinite Love!

Since landing on Earth in 2017 Cosmic Triceratops have played wild & ecstatic shows at the infamous Brixton Hootenanny’s, Sheffield’s legendary Yellow Arch Studios, the inimitable Shambala Festival, Eden, Peace in the Park, Folk Forest and many more random gigs including a bizarre performance on a moving bus. Their live shows are immersive and interactive: frenetic, joyous dancing, rainbows of eco-glitter and invocations of cosmic love are mandatory!

Captain Avery & the Cosmic Triceratops of Intergalactic Peace recently released their debut Earth album: 8 wild cosmic tracks aboard the Mothership, the now legendary SEXY FUTURE.
