Final Damnation is an excellent live show from The Damned's Reunion Concert of summer 1988, which saw original members Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Brian James and Rat Scabies on stage blasting out some classic Damned from their early days. The track listing is heavily based on early Damned material, much more "punkier" than their later styles. Kicking off with fast and furious renditions of "See Her Tonite" and "Neat Neat Neat" the band doesn't fail to please the crowd. The band play with lots of energy; the songs are fast and furious. Following the blast of material from their debut album "Damned Damned Damned", excellent performances of "Smash It Up" and "Love Song" are well worth it. A favourite moment of mine on the CD is when The Damned's 'front man' Dave Vanian says to the crowd "We love you, you're the sweetest bunch of nicest people", followed by "We're not doing it for the money" to which the crowd reply "Oh yes you are..." then a rising cheer as bassist Paul Gray kicks into 'Neat Neat Neat'. A Beatles' song "Help" is performed, just after a round of thanks is given for everyone involved in the gig. "I Just Can't Be Happy Today" and "Wait For The Blackout" are performed very well, and the the set ends with a Jagger-Richards song "The Last Time". Final Damnation is a powerful live performance by The Damned, and although perhaps a bit too much emphasis on early material, it is still worth 4 out of 5 for sheer energy and on-stage skill (there are some excellent guitar solos).

Having bought the original Final Damnation video when it was released I was pleased to see it now available in convenient DVD format, plus the CD as well! No more aged video or crackly green vinyl playback for me i thought. The CD is a fine recording of a magnificent live performance that captures the raw energy of this awesome band. The DVD however came as a bitter disappointment. Who in Swansea thought it would be a good idea to have some bloke giving the most inane commentary i have ever heard in between each song...and not only that but over the beginning of the songs as well!

As I said the CD is a live classic, the DVD will do if you can't get hold of the original video from Hendring which really is worth a look.

I love live recordings. They give the sense of feeling that you are actually there at the venue (which in the case of Final Damnation I was). The track on this CD capture all the energy of the Damned at their best. Raw, short (with the exception of Just Can't Be Happy), sharp etc. My gripe with this is WHY, when the track order is as was actually played on the night, does each track then fade out rather than with a seemingly seamless link into the next one; in addition to which Looking At You is limited to the last few minutes of the number. I accept that Sensible's continuous crowd baiting would need to be edited to fit everything onto the CD but surely there's enough room for Looking At You in full.

With the exception of the aforementioned gremlins I would still recommend this to any avid Damned follower. The actual performance of the tracks has something that was probably not quite there on earlier live recordings of theirs.

I am actually from the States and have been looking for Final Damnation for a long time...I had grown up listening to this CD, which my mom finally gave to me at the young age of seven. Unfortunately, between here and there, I lost it...The cover of Help used to be a favorite as a Beatles fan, and the album lives up to its memories. This is a live recording (der) and at times messy, but what'd you expect? Of course, I've heard the studio recordings, which are maybe preferable to some ears, but again, childhood!!! So glad I found this album and won't lose it again!

By An admirer of Arthur Guinness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I pre-ordered this album as soon as I knew it was going to be released at Amazon .
For years I owned the VHS tape of this concert , which was a last get-together-and-play show from The Damned . That tape got lost and until now I couldn't find the CD . This is not the best Damned CD , especially because it was recorded long after they heyday was gone , but it is nevertheless a great album and a great show . The boys were older in '88 , but never lost their irreverence and corrosive sense of humor .
Played before an eager audience in the summer of '88 in London , "Final Damnation" is a testimony of the extraordinary energy of one of the best punk bands ever . The show kicks off in typical Damned fashion , when Captain Sensible almost gets hit by a beer bottle as soon as he shows up on stage : " Obnoxious ! You're supposed to drink it , not throw it " he says to the beer-thrower fan , just before the first chords of "See her tonite" start pulsing .
After that it's a Damned night : introducing "Neat neat neat" Capt. Sensible asks the crowd " Is this Live Aid ? " and then solemnly states "We're doing this show because we love you people" , at this point Rat Scabies says "No , we're doing it for the money" and the crowd follows them . You can't hear it on the CD , but on the VHS tape you could see the Captain pointing at Rat Scabies and telling the unrested crowd " We have a superstar lineup just for you . Here's George Michael on the drums" .
Later on the show they play a vertiginous version of Lennon & McCartney's "Help" , and then play "New rose" which was their first recording , as a matter of fact THE first punk single ever recorded , October 22nd 1976 , as the inside cover accurately states , 4 full weeks before the Pistols' "Anarchy in the UK" created chaos in the musical world .
Songs nos. 10 & 11 are my personal favorites : " I just can't be happy today " and " Wait for the blackout " , both musically strong enough to wake up a dead bear , but with a Doors-touch that makes them superior pieces . The clever use of keyboards certainly helps .
Towards the end of the show they go back to stripped-down , high-speed songs such as "Noise noise noise" and "Smash it up" , and finish off in a very appropriate manner , playing "The last time" .
Not a lot more to say : get the CD and a case of beer and play it as loud as you can , with or without company . Long Live The Damned ! It's Final Damnation indeed !

The Damned's first curtain call. 21 Jun. 2005
By Joseph P. Ulibas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Final Damnation was the first "final" concert from the Damned. This reunion show occured in the late 80's. Brian James and Captain Sensible were brought back to do a serious of farewell tours. One of them was captured on video and CD. The set was divided into two sections. The first half had the original four performer their "hits". Then Roman Jugg and Bryn Merrick were brought out to perform on the rest of the material. The final track (the Rolling Stones classic "The Last Time" has all of the band members on stage. A great show for all.

This proved to be so sucessful that they took it on the road. But after awhile things got a bit heating between the members and the spilt for good (well, until the early nineties).

Recommended for all Damned fans!

A great band at its worst 18 Nov. 2001
By Dan Plankton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been a Damned fan for 20 years, and I find this release appalling. The Damned went through numerous lineup changes between 1977 and 1986. This 1988 show is a reunion of two of the stronger lineups. But it sounds like they didn't rehearse at all. The skills of guitarist Brian James, who lights the band's debut album on fire, have seriously diminished by the time of this concert. The other members put in a listless, bored effort that sounds like they really don't want to be there. To check out the Damned, try Damned Damned Damned, Machine Gun Etiquette, and The Black Album, to hear a band progress from top-notch high-energy punk, to a completely unique mix of punk and unpretentious fun progressive rock.
