I loved this bands first album - This is Hazleville. Its rammed full of indie pop bangers. Dug it out the other day after forgetting about it for a few years. I thought they’d split after it but apparently not, there’s an unreleased album from 2008 and a pledge music released album from 2017… Any love for Captain here?

I loved the one they did with Tennille


Remember supporting them in my uni band at Liverpool academy 2, I think? Were a very nice bunch of people

Trying to lookup when it was but “Liverpool captain band” gets a lot of results for LFC captain armbands. Who knew?

Yeah, great little band. Never quite managed to claw out of the academy circuit at the time but they had some amazing little pop tunes.

Imagine not being the captain of Liverpool but wanting to go around wearing a Liverpool captain’s armband.


I remember Glorious from very early morning C4 music video programming with Rick Edwards when I started work at 7.00.

I like that song.
