Product Description

Product Description

* "We've been crying now for much too long, and now we're gonna dance to a different song..." Yes folks - the legendary classic album (CDWIK 905) is now released in a cardboard facsimile of the LP, as part of Chiswick / Ace Records' ongoing Hip Pocket series.

* Possibly the best Damned album ever, it features all three of their Chiswick hits.

4.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten classic 4 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
Arguably, The Damned's finest album. The band reformed after the disappointing Music For Pleasure with Captain Sensible changing from bass to lead guitar and showing off a wide range of his influences. Whereas The Damned under Brian James' leadership were stuck with James's Stooges fixation, the new line up allowed them to show off a wider range of skills. Highlights include guitar heroics and proto goth vocals from Vanian on Plan 9 Channel 7, the brilliant singles, including Love Song and Smash It Up and a blistering version of the MC5's Looking At You. Unfortunately, one reviewer seems to think this is a new Damned album and not the great return to form that most punks took to their hearts in 1979. Anyway, what's wrong with new Damned material? Grave Disorder included some great tracks and the band still put on one hell of a show!

4.0 out of 5 stars Noise Is For Heroes! 3 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
My favourite of The Damned albums in my collection!
Also a great start to the second phase of The Damned's career.
Of course the early Brian James stuff was good too and definetly
shouldn't be overlooked, but the post James line-up seem
to incorporate more elements and styles into the songs,
giving them more variety.
This is an exciting burst of punk energy and in "Love Song",
"I Just Can't Be Happy Today" and "Smash It Up" has some of
The Damned's finest singles. Other great songs include "Noise Noise Noise",
a brilliant cover of The MC5's "Looking At You" and "Melody Lee".
This is one of The Damned's albums where all the tracks are
strong enough and fit together well. The bonus tracks are also
worthy inclusions. "Smash It Up" is always a great track but
the intricate melodic build up to it on the album makes it even
more formidable. There's a metal influence on the good Captain's
guitar playing and the overall sound, but in a good way rather
than putting off non-metal/punk fans like myself. It helps add
a new element to the music. The Damned at their best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ladies and Gentlemen...How do ! 6 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
When it comes to punk albums there's none better, when it comes to daft punk albums then the Damned's Machine Gun Etiquette is special. I now own this album on vinyl,cassette, CD and 25th Anniversary CD, I can't get enough of it. From Love Song launching the album through to Plan 9, Channel 7 and ending with Smash It Up parts 1 and 2 every track is a real classic. I recently saw the Damned live at the Nottm Rock City (my favourite venue) and they played just about every track from Machine Gun Etiquette which highlighted the importance of this album to the band. Once you have heard this you will be hooked, go on buy it and be happy forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nibbled to death by an Okapi 21 Dec 2004
By Robmacd
Format:Audio CD
Ladies and gentlemen... how do.
Is it really twenty five years since I first heard this?
These songs brings back memories of nasty cider hangovers and big fuzzy jumpers, of 14 hole DM'S, of tartan trousers and leopardskin bumflaps, of being chased all around the Manchester Arndale, then up and down Market Street, by a gang of the dreaded Perry Boys one rainy Saturday afternoon.
Lots of ramalama jump up and down type gubbins for when other music seems like hard work.
Buy it, love it, play it at your sister.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just CAN be Happy Today!!!!!!!!!!! 14 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love The Damned, have done for years, and this has always been my favourite Damned album. From the joyous jump-around start of "Love Song", through the sinister "These Hands", wonder at the brillinace of "Looking at You", and then calm down with the first part of "Smash it Up", before part 2 'punks' up the volume. Smashing stuff. Lots of additional track tracks bulk out this edition - some b-sides, some original versions, and part 4 of "Smash it up", previously released. All good fun but I wish they had included the "Fiddling About" version of "Anti-pope", which appeared on the b-side of the "Sanity Clause" single, which, as far as i know, has never been on CD before. Buy this - play it at your sister. And watch out for those Okapis!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Smash It Up 9 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Definitely The Damned's best album, I originally bought it on vinyl after seeing them perform I Just Can't Be Happy Today and Smash It Up on BBC2's OGWT.
Classic punk album with a great start in Love Song going through gems like Melody Lee, I Just Can't Be Happy Today, Anti-Pope, These Hands and ending the original album with Smash It Up.
With all the bonus tracks added to the superb original, every punk fan should own this.

Machine Gun Etiquette was my introduction to this extraordinary band and what an introduction it was. I'd heard dribs and drabs throughout my lifetime but never a full album. I cannot over-emphasize enough just how much this album blew my balls off. For weeks and weeks I shuffled around like a junked up maniac, headphones enbedded into my eardrums, with this album as my drug.

It opens up with a very subtle "Ladies and gentlement, how do?" and then it's straight into the proto-hardcore punk of "Love Song". This really sets the tone but don't get too comfortable as no more than two minutes in it's onto the Stooges-esque "Machine Gun Etiquette", heavier, faster and somehow shorter than it's bigger brother. Depression never sounded more joyous next in the 60's tinged "I Just Can't Be Happy Today", a nice u-turn from the opening two tracks underlined with a brilliant over the top organ solo.

This album reminds me of being out on the town with a coked-up buddy, constantly tripping over themselves to get the next sentence out. You're only starting to get into the brilliance of "Melody Lee" before it stops, there's a cry of BOLLOX! and you're thrown into another punky classic "Anti-pope". This one should be noted for it's cleverly crafted double tracked bass-breakdown mid-section, culminating in one almighty payoff.

The fairground dementia of "These Hands" provides a breather of sorts next, and by god you're gonna need it as it's one hell of a ride to the finish line from here on out. The highest point of the album so far comes with the sauring "Plan 9 Channel 7", the albums first real classic and one which really hits the sky at it's most intense.
