The Tale of The Damned (Damned Damned)

May 29th, 2020

While the Sex Pistols are claimed with spearheading the punk movement in the UK, with Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious as its poster boys, and later The Clash took punk rock in a more diverse musical direction, there was one band quietly racking up a string of ‘firsts’: First UK punk rock band to release a single; first UK punk rock band to release a full-length album; first UK punk rock band to tour America; and the first UK punk rock band to split up and then reunite - MANY times.

This band is also still performing live and releasing new material to this day, more than 40 years later. In this episode, Banned Biographies takes a look at the career of one of the hardest working of the original punk bands - The Damned - and its many,many members.
