Captain Sensible: Solo & Beyond... (2016)

The list of shows for 2016 is believed to be complete (lists for some years are very much 'work in progress').


* as Captain Sensible

Saturday 22 October 2016 - St George's Walk, Croydon

Set: New Rose, Croydon, Happy Talk.

Comments: On 22 October, Croydon Council in conjunction with Punk London, marked 4 decades of punk rock (exactly 40 years to the day since The Damned, released the first ever punk single, ‘New Rose‘) [The Damned had close links with Croydon - the Captain originally living in the area, Rat Scabies and The Damned having worked at The Fairfield Halls, and the band having played the Croydon Greyhound on numerous occasions]. The day included original artwork, free live music, and chances for people who remembered 1976 to share their memories. As part of the day, the walls of St George’s Walk and the windows of the old Nestle building were covered in a montage of old and new artwork – from record sleeves, badges and posters dating back to 1976, to modern interpretations of the punk ethic, created by contemporary artists and graphic designers. Captain Sensible was in attendance at St George's Walk and played the short set above on acoustic guitar. Johhny Moped sang some of the vocals during the Captain's rendition of 'New Rose'.

Sunday 7 August 2016 - The Opera House, Winter Gardens, Blackpool

Comments: On Sunday the 7th, the Captain was interviewed by Barry Cain at the Rebellion Festival. At the end of the interview, Barry Cain thanked the Captain and said "that's a wrap" - to which the Captain replied along the lines of - "Did somebody say a rap?" and broke into an impromptu version of 'Wot'.

Friday 22 April 2016 - Monty Bar, Los Angeles, California

Comments: Captain Sensible was the guest DJ for the night at Monty Bar, Los Angeles, on a day off from touring commitments with The Damned. During his DJ set, he performed a sing-a-long version of 'Wot'.
