Captain Sensible: Solo & Beyond... (2013)

The list of shows for 2013 is believed to be complete (lists for some years are very much 'work in progress').


* (as) Captain Sensible

Tuesday 24 September - Matthews Yard, Croydon (Croydon HeartWorks)

Set: Croydon, Happy Talk.

Comments: Croydon HeartWorks was a series of 6 events, "with a Croydon flavour", held on Tuesday evenings between 24 September and 29 October. "Six evenings of mindfulness, community connection and music, exploring minfulness and community, together with an electric music programme. The practice of mindfulness has emerged from Buddhist circles into the mainstream as a way to live a more satisfying life in the present moment, and grow in empathy with others". There were talks on different aspects of mindfulness and cultural competence and the community connection described innotaive projects that were unfolding inside and outside of Croydon. Additionally there was a full music programme by local musicians played in a variety of styles. Entry was by donation of a non-perishable food item to the Croydon Food Bank.

* (with) Johhny Moped Band

Thursday 19 September - Koko, Camden, London

Set participation [but see comments also]: Well Alright, Groovy Ruby, Darling Let's Have Another Baby, Hard Lovin Man, Something Else, Hard Lovin Man (again).

Comments: Special gig following the premier of the film 'Basically, Johnny Moped'. Captain Sensible played as part of the band, being the original guitarist, joining them on stage for the latter part of the set. 'Well Alright' - Captain and Johnny Moped only (Captain guitar, Johnny Moped vocals), 'Darling Let's Have Another Baby' (Captain not playing, just holding up lyrics for the audience), 'Something Else' (Captain did not play, but provided some backing vocals).

Wednesday 14 August - Place Decour, Liege, Belgium

Comments: Nostalgia Live Tour. Captain Sensible posted on the web that he would be performing in Leige as part of the Nostalgia Live Tour and intended to include 'Hard To Believe I'm Not' amongst his set. However, in a later posting he stated "Shocker of a cold... and completely losing my voice too, that meant although I was in Liege that day, I simply couldn't perform".

* (as) Captain Sensible with unspecified band

Saturday 10 August - Winter Gardens, Blackpool

Comments: Rebellion Festival. Captain Sensible was shown in the list of confirmed bands in the run-up to the 2013 Rebellion Festival. However, this appearance never came to fruition because other shows were booked elsewhere for The Damned, surrounding their Rebellion appearance on the Friday.
