One Little Independent Records To Re-Release This Is Your Captain Speaking By Captain Sensible

Captain Sensible - This Is Your Captain Speaking

Punk pioneers Crass continue their vinyl reissue series, repressing their limited releases of adjacent artists through Crass Records, in association with One Little Independent Records. Following records from Honey Bane and Jane Gregory in March, reissues from Captain Sensible and Omega Tribe will be released on August 26th. Pre-order HERE

The series, including over twenty bands and solo artists recorded at the legendary Southern Studios and produced by Penny Rimbaud, continues with two historic pieces of the Crass Records catalogue; anarcho-punk outfit Omega Tribe’s debut release ‘Angry Songs’, and cult icon Captain Sensible’s ‘This is Your Captain Speaking’. The anti-establishment themes explored by both artists remains as pertinent today as they were upon their release over forty years ago.

‘This Is Your Captain Speaking’ by Captain Sensible (a founding member of punk rock legends The Damned) mixes pure punk audaciousness with hints of psychedelia and goth as well as choral music, to create something undeniably “Captain”. The EP features vocal contributions from the band, Dolly Mixture and engineer John Loder’s young daughter Tash. Penny Rimbaud, who wrote the lyrics for the first track, ‘What D’Ya Give’, features on drums throughout. Tongue-in-cheek and also raw, the EP represents a pivotal moment when two of punk’s original trailblazers joined forces.
