The Damned: Every Album, Every Song

by Morgan Brown Author

For the last 45 years, the Damned have been a tremendous influence on British music. Starting in 1976 they brought UK punk to the world, and became progenitors of hardcore, post-punk, goth, indie, and horror-punk muiscal movements that came after. Their influence may not be widely known, but it's widely felt. This book takes a deep dive into each album, from Damned Damned Damned through Evil Spirits and beyond. The stories behind each album are told in loving detail, from the inspirations and antics of the band to the production process and musical building blocks. The author is a fan, but also a colleague, having played in a number of bands that appeared alongside the Damned. For fans of the band then, now, and forever.
