In October, 2004, their debut album 'My own Fairground', produced by Uwe Sabirowsky (Beatsteaks, Thumb, Keith Caputo of Life of Agony), was released and earned much excited press in Germany: "Capricorn doesn't stay following any potential examples, they pass them without any effort instead" [Rheinische Post (daily newspaper)]. "'My own Fairground' shows the first attempts at walking of a band, that is counted among the best that rockmusic can provide these days" [www.noize.cc (alternative music zine)] The thirteen songs on the album are loved by fans for being young and fresh, atmospheric, melodic and rhythmic. The band's topics are love and agony, beauty and sorrow, feeling and flavour. "My own Fairground" is far from being depressive; it has immense power and positive spirit, although von Werden sings a lot about times of personal crisis.
Their songs are very honest and show an enormous potential of identification. In 2005, the guys shared the German stages with other national and international ambitious bands as there were Madsen, Biffy Clyro and once again Donots and made numerous fans. 3) Capricorn Italo Disco act consisting of Claudio Simonetti & Giancarlo Meo most famous for their 1982 hit "I need Love". 4) Capricorn is the brainchild of Dutchman Hans Weekhout, experienced musician, engineer and producer, professionally involved in music for about ten years now. Born in 1965 in Naarden, he began playing bass and keyboards in his early teens and figured in various locally successful bands, most of them soul- and funk-orientated. After finishing school he found his occupation in studio work, recording and mixing for innumerable Dutch acts as well as for international artists such as Ian Gillan and Falco. Although learning a lot from these sessions, he felt he lacked an outlet for his own musical ideas and slowly took up writing again.
Strongly influenced by the Dance movement of the late eighties, his efforts would go into elaborated dance tracks with an experimental edge; the first he composed were released through the Dutch branch of major Sony, but later, with the project Paranoiax, he went on to record for Epic in the United States. The real breakthrough however came with 20 Hz, recorded in the summer of 1992 and released on Global Cuts under the banner Capricorn. In the spring of 1993 the track started to appear in dance charts all over the world and finally hit the singles charts in Holland, Belgium, the U.K. and France, while a strong American interest followed in the wake of this impressive European success. The brand new 12"/CD Harakiri looks set to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, with club and radio play already overwhelming and chart positions on the way.
Working from his own studio in his home base of Amsterdam, Hans is currently preparing the first Capricorn album (Lost In Jellywood), as well as an as-yet-unnamed new project which will incorporate ambient, ethnic and dub/reggae influences."
