The Damned Announce 40th Anniversary Reissue Of Debut Album

The Damned

Punk rock legends The Damned have announced that they will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their debut album "Damned Damned Damned" with a deluxe reissue.

Billed as an "Art of the Album" deluxe edition, the reissue will be released on February 17th by BMG. The original album was released by Stiff Records on February 18, 1977. The new reissue series has been started to reignite focus on the album format.

The deluxe reissue will be released both on CD and vinyl LP and will feature the remastered audio along with new sleevenotes detailing "the band's conception and the album's creation," according to the announcement.

The band has also announced a massive North American spring tour which is scheduled to kick off on April 6th in Los Angeles at the Belasco Theater and will wrap up on May 21st in Phoenix at the Marquee Theater.

Captain Sensible had these comments about the making the album, "'Damned Damned Damned' was almost 'un-produced' by our Stiff stablemate Nick Lowe, who managed to capture the energy of our live set spectacularly.

"Nick was known as 'Basher' as there was no messing about. It's fairly manic, but also tuneful and, listened to now, still sounds pretty fresh to my ears…. The guitars don't sound nice - they're a raw, fuzzed-out thrash - that's punk rock.

"Pathway was a rough and ready studio round the back of an Islington garage. It was so dark and dingy in there - you had to be careful or you'd knock your beer over. The sessions took two days, after which the tape was recycled for an Elvis Costello album so there's no chance of a remix… Not that you'd want one - it's perfect!"
