Product Description

Some of the seminal punk anthems of 1976 including the U.K's first ever Punk Single New Rose being re addressed by the man who wrote them with today's sound. Brian is currently on Tour with Co Damned founder Rat Scabies performing these songs and more from the first two Damned albums. A film is currently being shot about The Damned by Wes Orshoski who Made the Lemmy Movie. Amusingly Adverts Bassist Gay Advert provides us with the spoken intro to New Rose. The Damned and Adverts toured famously under the Stiff Records banner 'The Adverts know one chord, The Damned know two, hear all three chords at...'

How a man who wrote the majority of the early Damned's finest work (and possibly Punks finest album)can re-record it in such a shabby and awful way is beyond me. Everything is missing here, poor vocals, poor drums, no energy...........oh dear so bad I put mine on e-bay straight away! I wish I hadn't tainted my memories of such a fine guitarist and musician with this purchase and when I compare it with the current performances of The Damned Sensible/Vanian etc who are still giving it large this is a major disappointment he should have left well alone unless the original line-up had agreed to help him out.

I can honestly see why many would feel that an album consisting of re-recordings would seem tired and pointless, but Brian still has fire in the belly. The guitar ROARS with wild intensity, and I personally like the relaxed vocal style. This is a fine return from a Punk visionary. Reccomended.

Just had a quick listen and was saddened by the quality of the re-recorded songs. The vocals sound like a drunk at the back of a bus, but the guitar chops are still there, which makes it all the more frustrating....Please Mr.James, stop singing !

Excellent 1 July 2013
By Richard Ecker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Starting with the majestic "New Rose" introduced by Gaye Advert, we get the ball rolling on a great re-interpretation of songs that are classics. "New Rose" is played with the venom and energy that will get you smiling right off the bat. "Born To Kill" adds some piano to great effect, "You Take My Money" has exemplary guitar playing and power, "Feel The Pain" has some interesting accordion playing with James just letting everything get a little loose on this track, and "Sick Of Being Sick" takes the song and amps up the ferocity and makes this a blistering track. The band and James really take control of these songs and infuse them with a modern punch that really adds to the songs and unlike others who have tried this in the past, it doesn't take away from the great heritage of the originals. "Alone" keeps the intensity going on this album, while "I Fall", "Fan Club" and "Neat Neat Neat" are one hot trio that will leave you speechless.

Most people will wonder, "Why bother to pick this up when I can get the originals?" The answer is because this is a great album that has the writer of some of the greatest punk songs having fun and it comes out loud and clear on these recordings. Don't compare, just enjoy the music and turn it up loud.
