Burritos, Inspiration Point, Fork Balloon Sports, Cards in the Spokes, Automatic Biographies, Kites, Kung Fu, Trophies, Banana Peels We've Slipped On and Egg Shells We've Tippy Toed Over is Cap'n Jazz's first and only full-length album, originally released in 1995 on Man With Gun Records.

Undoubtedly one of the most influential albums ever to be released (if not of all time, then definitely of 1995), Burritos... has spawned more bands than words in its title. Often shortened to just Shmap’n Shmazz, the record was released when the members — Tim Kinsella, Mike Kinsella, Victor Villarreal, Sam Zurick, and Davey von Bohlen — were mere teenagers, with future bands such as American Football, The Promise Ring, Joan of Arc, Owls, Owen and more but a twinkle in the eye of their collective discographies.

Out-of-print in its initial form for almost the entirety of its 23-year existence, this cassette pressing lovingly restores the original release’s artwork and 12-song tracklist.

Reviews

Much of the record goes beyond the cleansing ritual of confession and catharsis, searching for something closer to transcendence. [8.8]

Pitchfork

Little did anyone know that their first and only proper LP would provide a significant blueprint for dozens of emo and post-hardcore acts to follow.

Rolling Stone [40 Greatest Emo Albums of All Time]

Mike and Tim [Kinsella]’s searing Cap’n Jazz isn’t the most immediate of their projects but, on this killer self-titled album, is definitely one of the most fun.
