Captain sensible (The Damned)


Vegetarian since 1982. Released a single in 1985 called ‘Wot! No Meat?’ in response to a television advert by the British Meat Marketing Board. He said “They use a laughing, happy clown to sell meat, but they never actually mention the cow. Kids are taught at school that animals are lovely – look at the lovely little sheep – and they they’re given a lamb to chop at dinner, and they don’t make the connection between the two”.

"I'm pretty much a vegan".
