Captain America was formed in 1990 by vovalist and guitarist Eugene Kelly following the dissolution of his former band, The Vaselines. The initial line-up also contained Gordon Keen (guitar), James Seenan (bass), and Andy Bollen (drums),
The line-up later changed, as did the name of the band following an injunction threat from Marvel Comics who claimed copyright. The band became known as Eugenius which just happened to be the frontman’s affectionate nickname and there were even more personnel changes by the time they went back into the studio (but that’s a story for when I get to the letter ‘E’).
I don’t play this song often enough. It’s an absolute belter of a tune.
