  • The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead [DVD] The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead | DVD | (29/05/2017) from £9.89  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    From Lemmy filmmaker Wes Orshoski comes the story of the long-ignored pioneers of punk: The Damned. The long-ignored pioneers of punk, The Damned started out as trailblazers on London's 70s punk rock scene, being the first British punk band to release a single, the immortal New Rose in 1976. They were the first of their band's genre to release an album, and the first to tour the United States, performing to sell out crowds, where they left a lasting musical legacy. However the critical adoration lavished on contemporaries like The Clash and Sex Pistols always eluded them. Shot around the globe over three years, the film charts the band's complex history and infighting. It captures the band on a world tour and follows its estranged former members striking out on their own anniversary tour. With contributions from Chrissie Hynde, Mick Jones (The Clash), Lemmy and members of Pink Floyd, Black Flag, Guns 'N' Roses, the Sex Pistols, Blondie and The Buzzcocks.

  • The Damned - Final Damnation - The Reunion Concert - Live At The Town And Country [1988] The Damned - Final Damnation - The Reunion Concert - Live At The Town And Country | DVD | (03/08/2013) from £6.99  |  Saving you £0.00 (0.00%)  |  RRP £6.99

    The Damned continued to fuel the ardent fires of old fans and new long after the flames of The Sex Pistols and The Clash had been extinguished. Final Damnation is a testament to their longevity and popularity, reeking as it does of fannish glee. It's essentially a document about the legendary reunion concert at London's Town and Country Club in June, 1988, a 17-song set of "chaos music". Captain Sensible walks on in shorts and a veil to wind up the audience ("We're not doing it for the money"). Rat's already spraying water on the drumskins and Dave Vanien (nee Letts) is ready to "woah" his way into "See Her Tonight". They were the first UK punk band; they had the UK's first punk single ("New Rose", which is also played here); somehow they ended up being a look/sound blend of punk, Goth and rockabilly. And that has to be at the heart of what makes the world's fastest cover of The Beatles' "Help" so amazing. Other song highlights include "Fish", the audience singalong to "Wait for the Blackout" and the finale of "The Last Time". On the DVD: there's a downside to this disc, sadly, in the form of an annoying Video Jockey who has plenty of interesting things to say, but says it over the songs! Rubbing it in even more is a duplication of his commentary in what's labelled as a Biography. For the juicy info the disc's real gems are the 16-minute "Damned Story", crammed with chat from the concert event, and the 18-minute 2001 interview with Brian James. This is the sort of condensed candid critique by which all bands ought to be measured. A photo gallery slideshow rounds out the package. --Paul Tonks

  • The Damned In Concert [2007] The Damned In Concert | DVD | (29/10/2007) from £6.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £4.99

    Well little did we think when The Damned recorded MGE in `79 that by public demand they would be playing vertually the whole thing again LIVE in 2004 on the 25th anniversary reissue tour! 'Etiquette' has apparently stood the test of time - still sounding pretty fresh and vibed up...mainly owing to their patent combination of punk and psychedelia that they were into at the time. The tour was great fun with the Manchester show being filmed in front of an enthusiastic audience. Tracklisting: 1. Love Song 2. Machine Gun Etiquette 3. I Just Cant Be Happy Today 4. Anti-Pope 5. New Rose 6. I Fall 7. History Of The World Pt.1 8. Looking At You 9. Would You Be So Hot 10. Magic Potion 11. Absinthe 12. Ignite 13. Eloise 14. Melody Lee 15. Neat Neat Neat 16. Jet Boy Jet Girl 17. Curtain Call 18. Noise Noise Noise 19. Smash It Up (Part 1) 20. Smash It Up (Part 2)
