Captain Sensible: Solo & Beyond... (1991)

This listing of appearances by Captain Sensible for 1991, outside of The Damned, should be considered as 'work in progress'.


* (as) Captain Sensible / Captain Sensible & The Family Butcher (band comprising Captain Sensible (guitar/vocals), Paul Gray (bass), ????)

Sunday 25 August 1991 - Mean Fiddler Stage, Reading Festival

Set: New Rose, A Riot On Eastbourne Pier, Neat Neat Neat, Exploding Heads And Teapots, Looking At You, Glad It's All Over, Smash It Up (part 2 only).

Comments: Appearance played as Captain Sensible & The Family Butcher. Introduced incorrectly by the compere as Captain Sensible "with his new band The Phantom Chords". The audio bootleg that the above set was taken from had a flaw between 'Glad It's All Over' and 'Smash It Up' - it is possible that there was an encore break at this point and that the bootleg was just 'stitched together' (removing a period of on stage inactivity).
