One year difference between MGE & The Black Albun which had this on it:Fantastic band from their punk incarnation to their gothic era.
Imagine that the "same" band did this song:
and this song:
Same here. I saw the album cover and the fact that a member was named Captain Sensible, and was intrigued. Talked my mom into buying it for me lol. I was hooked the moment I listened. I literally wore that first copy out.I actually got really into them when Strawberries came out & then went backwards
"Just Can't Be Happy Today" is my theme song! "Under the Floor Again" has just about my favourite guitar solo on it, love the good Captain's work on that.Always great to see them get some love here at TGP. My all time favorite band, ever. Been a fan and collector since I was about 13. My avatar is their "Just Can't Be Happy Today" 45, and my user name is a combination of 2 of their songs.
Really good & fun album that one, soundtrack to the movie ""Give daddy The Knife, Cindy" if I recall, in "3D Color" no less!! I was in a band that did at least 3 or 4 songs of that one.The Damned like XTC did a psych album under a different name in 1984.
I had to miss that one, but at least I got a shirt sent to me as a consolation prize lol. They're coming back this sping...April/May, doing their biggest US tour since 1998.I saw them at the end of October, the 2nd night of their two night stand at Gramercy Theatre. They played two sets, for a total of well over three hours. Their setlist went back in time, album by album, from the most recent stuff until they reached "New Rose". Amazing show.
