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.

The Sex Pistols Story

April 24th, 2020

The 1970s was a turbulent time in the UK what with a national energy crisis, a financial crash, strikes leading to the three-day-week, runaway inflation and record unemployment figures. Was it any wonder then that people felt disenfranchised, frustrated and nihilistic?

Out of this bubbling tension exploded a band that epitomised the national feeling. The Sex Pistols single-handedly invented the punk genre both in terms of sound and aesthetics, and in just a few short years - and amazingly, only one album - shook the foundations of the establishment and inspired countless young people who felt like they didn’t belong to form bands and make their voices heard.

This first full-length episode of Banned Biographies takes an in-depth look at the ups and downs of punk's most iconic band as well as some of the other notable and notorious figures caught in their wake.
