Leonardo DiCapricorn Archive

  • It’s probably old news by now, but Leonardo DiCapricorn is no more. Luckily, they did not disband before playing a final show (which was amazing) and leaving us with a parting gift in the form of the Friends, Anemones EP.  It happens to be a perfect send off to an all too short lived band that lit up the scene with their intrinsic mania for less than two years.
