Captain Sensible: Solo & Beyond... (1988)

This listing of appearances by Captain Sensible for 1988 should be considered as 'work in progress'.


* (as) Wreckless But Sensible

Saturday 23 July 1988 - St Andrews (Fife Aid)

Set: Smash It Up (part 2 only), I Get So Excited, Swimming Against The Tide Of Reason, A Sporting Life, Some Of Us, Whole Wide World, Glad It's All Over.

Comments: Band included Captain Sensible, Wreckless Eric & Paul Gray. Other bands on this day included The Sugacubes and Marillion. The article that this information was gleaned from indicated that during 'A Sporting Life', Cleo from Tin Pan Alley had to hold up the words as Captain couldn't remember them. The same article stated that 'Toys Take Over' followed 'A Sporting Life' - however, there is no evidence of this on a bootleg recording of the show.

* (as) Captain Sensible

Tuesday 14 June 1988 - Cricketers, Kensington Oval, London

Set: unknown.

Comments: Also on the bill - Carter & The Unstoppable Sex Machine. It is unclear who headlined this show.
