The thing I like about Captain Sensible albums is the fact that 'sensible' is the last thing they are.
They are mad in a good sense; not 'wacky' or 'goofy' but genuinely crackers on a level (I think) with Beefheart and Zappa - though musically they share very little with either of the album-addicted duo.

His influences are obviously Hendrix and crazy trippin' bands like ? and the Mysterians and the Electric Prunes, but the music he launches at us is sort of unique in an underground, compulsive-after-two-listens style..
He plays spectacular rock guitar in a LOUD fashion, he's got vast banks of power-synth, and he's usually got a rumbustious bass and drums which drive his exquisitely melodic, spirited songs to their rich and raging conclusions.

He's a bit political at times, and he's covering a lot of ground on 'Revolution Now'. He has fierce but funny downers on the like's of meat-eating, racism, fur, religion and especially war.
He's a committed soul is our Captain, but he's NEVER boring; the trademark red beret at a tilt, and a drunken swagger hide the plain and un-arguable fact that here is somebody highly amusing - but properly worth a listen. Talk about hiding your light under a bushell, Sensible is off most people's radar (This is because most people are FAR TOO SERIOUS about music, and tend to avoid genuine eccentrics, however talented they may be). This is very foolish indeed.

For reasons lost to me, yer average music fan is reluctant to try him out. They see The Damned, and it's "OMG it's a punky, shun him quick," but I fancy him to have the last laugh (I'm so nave and misguided, I believe talent will out eventually. No job with Simon Cowell for me, I'm afraid...).

An album for any mood to make you feel good and inspired.

So many cracking tunes, such as missing the boat (great pop hit that never was), toys take over, riot on eastbourne pier, lib 2/3(why does this make me think of enter the dragon??), revolution now, i get so excited(try not to be put in a good mood when this is playing!), kamikaze millionaire, exploding heads and saving the best til very last, the last five minutes of coward of treason cove is probaly the grooviest song ever (perfect for an austin powers girl dance routine in my head ha).

wish lyrics was with the flimsy booklet but the tunes stand as his finest!

Revolution Now was released to almost complete indifference from the music press. However, the album as a whole is a masterpiece. It is loaded with highly original songs which make strong political statements. Sound bites lifted from the radio bookend many of the tracks, complementing the songs and holding the album together as a cohesive creation. 'Coward of Treason Cove' echos the Damned's 'Curtain Call' and is absolutely superb. A genuinely great album from a talented and oft underrated musician and song writer. No clowning around here - just a series of strong political and social statements, delivered in a thoughtful and intelligent manner.

Well, first of all I'm a big Damned fan, and therefore have a soft spot for Sensible, who over the years has provided some great material for the band.

I've dipped in and out of his solo stuff and generally enjoy it. This album is no different and I bought it primarily for 'The Kamikaze Millionaire' and 'Exploding Heads & Teapots' both of which showcase Sensible at his best, whilst 'A Riot on Eastbourne Pier' has a bit more edge.

I'd not heard 'The Coward of Treason's Cove' before and it's a bit of an epic, (Pete Townsend without the pretence?), and as noted by others does appear to 'reference' The Teardrop Explodes.

Would have been 5 stars but suffers from that '80s-light production. I think some of this material would benefit from a revisit in the studio.

Try 'Live at the Milky Way' which has the added bonus of Sensible's unique approach to audience engagement!
