The Damned – Damned Damned Damned (For fans of The Clash)

If you think that The Clash or The Sex Pistols were the first big punk bands from England, you’re wrong. The Damned were the first UK punk band to release a single, an album, and tour the United States, yet they don’t nearly get the recognition they deserve.

This is partly because they changed their style up after their first album “Damned Damned Damned”, but if you’re a fan of 70s style punk in the veins of Anti-Pasti and The Clash, you definitely should check out “Damned Damned Damned”

  1. are you writing things specifically to wind me up? how about damned for damned fans? my fave of the first wave of uk punk bands, best albums are black album and machine gun etiquette. you’re right though, a criminally underrated band

  2. AJ:

    Haha well… I figure, if people are already Damned fans, then I have nothing new to share with them ;p

    Seriously though, I haven’t checked out Black Album, I’ll have to check it. Thanks for the recommendation

  3. if you are going to check out the black album make sure you get the reissue of the double album with the blistering live set from 1980 and all the singles, the album is a good mix of their more experimental side and good old fashioned punk
