Great stuff! Their usual guitar player, Captain Sensible, plays bass on that video. Actually, underneath the costumes and the silly moves, he's actually a decent enough player (and as far as I remember, he's usually an SG-type guy too):

I never thought of myself a big fan of punk but the first tape i ever bought I believe was the dead kennedys back in the 80s. I always liked bands like them and the damned and the cramps. I guess its the horror movie vibe or the way they sing. its hard to explain but i like that style of punk way better then crap like black flag.
Check your history. Brian James, the one playing the SG was the original guitarist and the one who wrote most of the songs on their first couple of albums. After they split in early 1978 he went on to form several other bands (including one with Stiv Bators) while the band reformed later in the year with Sensible taking over guitar and enlisting Algy Ward on bass. :)
what bass is that?
havent heard that..I heard his Black Flag is better than the other Black Flag touring now
I saw James' band The Lords Of The New Church a number of times in concert and, man, were they incredible. The thing is their records really were sub-par. Nothing special at all, few good songs here and there. But damn did they give one hell of a concert.That's what I meant! I know the Captain was the bass player in the early days.
Although I wasn't familiar with James' trajectory after the Damned; I've now checked it out and found out he was the guitar player and co-founder of The Lords of the New Church... I never noticed it was the same guy!
i saw videos of both Flag and Black Flag, id rather see Flag by 100 miles! i love Ginn in his heyday, but he just seems to be going through the motions..the guitarist Flag has from the Descendents, nails his sound, the way it was back in the day..edit: i saw other videos, i just saw the ones posted up top, and there you have it, Ginn just aint as Ginn-like as the old daze...havent heard that..I heard his Black Flag is better than the other Black Flag touring now
