Captain Sensible – There Are More Snakes Than Ladders (12″)

Captain Sensible, the bassist from The Damned, had a very prolific pop career in the 80’s and put out a lot of stuffcaptainy.

Unlike his main band the Captain preferred to dabble in technology for his solo output and this 1984 release is no exception, it even has some Fairlight in. Produced by ex-New Muzik man Tony Mansfield, Sensible was liked to combine both humor and social commentary in his songs, this is well produced synthpop. The “Folk Version” benefits with added acoustic guitar over lush synth strings, love it. The Dolly Mixtures, Sensible’s female backing group, even get a mention in the drum machine lead, “The 4 Mary’s..”, a mad rock and roll style romp.

  1. Good morning, hope you are well. Is there any chance of a re-up of Captain Sensible – There Are More Snakes Than Ladders (12″) please? Been looking for it for an age. Huge Tony Mansfield, New Music fan, and the ‘Folk Version’ sounds great. Thank you. Best wishes Mark

  2. Can you share this again when you get a chance? I can’t find the 4 Marys track anywhere. Thanks.
