Captain Ahab
“The Shadow of Heaven” [puppet show live on WFMU]

On Captain Ahab’s recent US tour, the band performed a 15-minute puppet show, entitled “The Shadow of Heaven,” which explained the origins of their dancer Jim. They recently went on Marty McSorley’s show on WFMU, who helped document it with fancy cameras. Check it out above — it’s amazing.

Captain Ahab’s third full-length, The End of Irony (TMT Review) was released last year on Deathbomb Arc.
