Why go and see it?

This will be a long overdue Friars homecoming for one of the most exciting and influential bands of the past forty years.

The Damned were the first UK punk band to ever release a single, New Rose in 1976, and an album, Damned Damned Damned in 1977. They were also the first UK punk rock band to tour the USA. They have had nine top forty singles including Love Song and Smash it Up (1979), Grimly Fiendish, The Shadow of Love and Is it a Dream? (1985), their biggest hit Eloise, which reached No 3 and Anything (1986), as well as Gigolo and Alone Again Or in 1987. Their biggest album was undoubtedly 1985’s Phantasmagoria produced in New York by Toni Visconti.

Production shot

The Damned have only played Friars Aylesbury once before, on 1 Dec 1979, but it is remembered as one of the best Friars gigs ever. It was with the original line-up of singer Dave Vanian, guitarist Brian James, bassist Captain Sensible and drummer Rat Scabies. The band had many break-ups and periods of key members not being present in the band with Rat Scabies finally leaving the band in 1995.

For this 2020 Friars gig the band will be Dave Vanian (vocals), Captain Sensible (guitar), long time bass player Paul Gray (who originally joined the band in 1980) and Monty Oxymoron on keyboards who joined the band in 1996. There will also be a top secret new drummer.

From their first gig in July 1976 supporting The Sex Pistols at the 100 Club, The Damned have had a long and notorious career with involvement along the way from Chrissie Hynde, Lemmy, Nick Mason and Culture Club’s Jon Moss amongst many others.
