Is it too early to begin the festive season? Not according to Captain Sensible and chums..
Those loveable Punk funsters The Sensible Gray Cells return with a suitably seasonal single, complete with a crazy video shot at the beach last summer..
Captain Sensible (The Damned) on guitar/vocals, Paul Gray (The Damned) on bass/vocals, with Marty Love (Johnny Moped) on drums are celebrating all things that are daft and frustrating about the festive season. The band’s Xmas ditty ‘A Stupid Xmas’ captures everything you love to hate about this special time of year. It also has the catchiest chorus since Slade and Wizzard ruled the charts!
So, if you’re bored with watching endless repeats of ‘Morecombe & Wise‘, or on the other channel Nigel Farage scoffing bugs on ‘I’m A Celebrity..’ and maybe fancy a crack at trying to solve a real, modern day ‘whodunnit’, then flip the record over for the somewhat darker flavoured B side ‘Keep it to Yourself’. A track which sees the band in full on ‘armchair detective’ mode, taking a look at the as yet still unresolved Madeleine McCann mystery..
Out on Damaged Goods Records this Friday 1st December, both tracks are exclusive to this release. With only 500 copies on red vinyl and 500 copies on green vinyl, the pre-order is already sold out in many stores – but check with independent record retailers for the last remaining copies!
Apparently a certain number of records will have a deliberate mistake hidden.. well, somewhere or other – a jolly wheeze inspired by some of those old Stiff Records ‘instant collector’s item’ mispressings..
The track is also available for download and streaming.
1 – ‘A Stupid Xmas‘
2 – ‘Keep it to Yourself‘

‘Usually found jumping around down the front at gigs, I also relish taking photos and videos, singing, speaking with fellow music fans, and asking musicians the questions nobody else does Writing about my favourite bands and connecting with people who love music too keeps me more-or-less sane I’ve worked for over 25 years at a video production company, mainly filming live music events, therefore I have an additional backstage perspective!’
