Upcote Farm, UK, Cheltenham (11/Jul/2019) Artist Biography
Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly is the stage name of English artist Sam Duckworth and his band. He is sometimes referred to as Get Cape, Cape, GCWCF and Slam Dunkworth (the latter title apparently first coined by Emmy The Great). According to Duckworth, his stage name comes from a ZX Spectrum magazine. One of the sections of the solution to the Batman computer game contained the header "Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly".
Sam grew up in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. Get Cape was signed to Atlantic Records (I love sam) in March 2006, after playing many gigs, both with punk rock band Silverskin and as Get Cape. Get Cape has collaborated with Billy Bragg, Nitin Sawhney, Shlomo, Killa Kela, Baba Maal, Flea, Kate Nash, and many others with his participation in many events for Africa Express.
Get Cape organised The Demolition Ball - the last night at the London Astoria venue before it was knocked down in January 2009. Get Cape also headlined the Astoria for his 21st birthday party.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
