Captain Sensible: Solo & Beyond... (1994)

This listing of appearances by Captain Sensible for 1994 is almost certainly incomplete and should be considered as 'work in progress'.

The band comprised Martin Newell, Captain Sensible, Garrie Dreadful, Nelson, Dave Gregory, and possibly TIV.

* (as) Captain Sensible

Saturday 23 April 1994 - Hammersmith Apollo, London

Set: Happy Talk.

Comments: Mick Ronson Memorial Concert. When asked about his appearance at this show, the Captain stated "Yes, I did this one, afterall Mick Ronson had 'lent' us his Mesa Boogie Mk2 (I think it was) that we [The Damned] used on Machine Gun Etiquette. How fab did that sound?...He sent someone round to pick the thing up when he found out where it was though, lol. Anyway, Johnny Moped and I were going to perform Mick's fave - 'Darling Let's Have Another Baby' at the memorial. Google it... it's actually true - he really did love the song, performing it live many a time himself! So, there I am at the gig, in the wings, waiting for Moped, counting off the minutes until my call and of course the great (and somewhat chaotic) man messed up his trains or something - and finally I heard myself being announced. What to do? Which is what I asked Spacetoad colleague and all round loonie Captain Roy, who was standing next to me, and gamely joined me for a bizarre improvised version of 'Happy Talk', which he patently didn't know. I vaguely remember him attempting some ballet moves at one point."
