Captain Cocoa were an indie jangly pop group active in the 1980s. Formed in Melbourne, Australia by twin brothers Glenn and David O'Neil (now a well-know comedian), Captain Cocoa gigged around Melbourne for nearly 8 years, playing bars, scout halls and once on a train. The band released 1 Album (Kite) and three singles (Bicycle Thieves, Paul Weller (was formerly yours) and Born to Shop). Captain Cocoa's sound was described as jangly, twee, quirky and popish and with a brass section and a percussionist gave them a slightly funky world music before-its-time feel.

Their influences were, well, obvious: Orange Juice, Mental as Anything, Haircut 100, the Reels, Madness, the Specials, the Church, the Go-Betweens and Kid Creole and the Coconuts (they admitted it). Formed by the twin brothers and friends mostly from the 1st/3rd Mitcham Scout Group, the group's line up was the following over the years: *played from start to end with the band (well Andre did join 6 months after the start...) Glenn O'Neil (vocals*) David O'Neil (vocals and bass*) David Wookey (drums*) Andre Elhay (saxaphone and flute*) Evan Ong (percussion) Terence Abrahams (guitar) Duncan (guitar - very shortly...) Mark Murphy (guitar) Mark Sbarrato (guitar - later years) Russell Eicke (bass) Anthony "Poss" Robinson (bass) Andrew Hepburn (bass) Anthony Eaton (percussion - later years) Leon de Bruin (trumpet) Nigel (trumpet) A.D. (trumpet and guitar) Captain Cocoa split up in the late 80s over "musical similarities" and the members of the band went on to varying levels of fame and fortune. Read more on Last.fm.
