Captain Sensible, member of The Damned and punk rock hero for nearly 40 years, has been immortalized via Throbblehead. This figure capturing Cap’s signature look is limited to 1000 numbered units, stands at 7 inches tall, and is made of space-age polyresin.
Let the good captain tell you to “sod off” on a daily basis as he gives you the ole two finger salute. He’s accurately sculpted right down to the beret, seething sneer, and leopard-print pants.
Coming later this year is the first ever documentary on The Damned, the long-ignored pioneers of punk and the first of the UK punk bands to release a single and an album and the first to tour America. Directed and produced by Wes Orshoski (“Lemmy”), this authorized film includes appearances from Chrissie Hynde, Mick Jones, Lemmy and members of Pink Floyd, Black Flag, Guns N Roses, the Sex Pistols, Blondie, the Buzzcocks, and more. Shot around the world over the past three years, it tells the story of the band’s complex history, as it celebrated its 35th anniversary and found its estranged former members striking out on their own anniversary tour, while still others battle cancer. The film gets up close and personal with Damned founders Rat Scabies, Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, and Brian James as it tells the story of one of the most criminally ignored acts in music history.
