Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly
Sam Duckworth is an English musician formerly known as Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. He is sometimes referred to as Get Cape, Cape, GCWCF and Slam Dunkworth (the latter title apparently first coined by Emmy The Great). According to Duckworth, his stage name comes from Retro Gamer magazine, from an article about superhero games such as Batman containing the heading "Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly".
Sam grew up in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. Get Cape was signed to Atlantic Records in March 2006, after playing many gigs, both with punk rock band Silverskin and as Get Cape. As Get Cape, Duckworth has collaborated with Billy Bragg, Nitin Sawhney, Shlomo, Killa Kela, Baba Maal, Flea, Kate Nash, and many others with his participation in many events for Africa Express.
Sam co-organised The Demolition Ball - the last night at the London Astoria venue before it was knocked down in January 2009.
Get Cape also headlined the Astoria for his 21st birthday party.
After 10 years, Sam Duckworth decided to end Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, to continue to make music under his own name. The last ever show under the 'Get Cape' moniker was held at The Forum, Kentish Town on 12 September 2014.
