Who are the CAPITALIST BOSSES!? Sometime in October 2004, Adrian Burhop approached his good friend and co-producer, Jonathan Achtman, with a little proposal. What if they were to sift through all of their recorded material from six months' worth of basement jamming and cut together a short Christmas gift CD for friends and family? The duo (known to each other as 8C) got to work and began to assemble material from the vaults of Studio 8C, Capitalist Bosses! Headquarters. Their little holiday project quickly evolved into a full-scale production, resulting in the 30-minute continuous mix Capitalist Bosses!. The reggae-flavoured album features guitar legend Prasun Lala, along with an assortment of talented Montreal artists. Songs were crafted from live off-the-floor recordings, overdubbed with horns, congas, keys and vocals, and then sewn together seamlessly into one final mix. In late January of 2005, a 'soft launch' was held at Studio 8C to celebrate the album's release, and proceeds from the evening went to the Red Cross for tsunami relief.
