ABOUT THE DAMNED

Following their formation in 1976, The Damned became the first UK punk band to officially release a single, ‘New Rose’, and an album Damned Damned Damned. With 10 studio albums and several UK chart singles, the band are pioneers who emerged from the London punk scene, earning an ever-expanding fan base fuelled by legendary live shows. Their dark lyrics and Dave Vanian’s rich baritone vocals also catapulted The Damned to the forefront of the Goth-Rock Genre. The Damned of today defy any categorisation and the ease of which songs from all phases of their career fit together in this ground-breaking spectacle is absolute proof.

THE DAMNED line-up are:

Dave Vanian – Vocals

Captain Sensible – Guitar

Monty Oxymoron – Keyboards

Paul Gray – Bass

Will Glanville-Taylor – Drums

I am a photographer/musician/engineer living in Scotland. My passion is music and motocross and I share my work on facebook/punk4RT and facebook/madmaxmedia. I do like a bit of throw back to the heydays of the 60’s/70’s/80’s when it comes to taking shots of bands. I grew up on the music papers (NME/Sounds/Melody Maker) and drew influence from Pennie Smith/Jill Furmanovsky/Anton Corbijn/Bob Gruen/Adrian Boot/Charles Peterson.
