one cannot get too much of that wonderful voice, and the music is great too
on 12 October 2017
I recently rediscovered The Damned after straying from the path for a few years, and am enjoying catching up on a few recordings, and so found this CD, which was a side-project of David Vanian's. Well, one cannot get too much of that wonderful voice, and the music is great too; Roman Jugg, guitarist during the more Goth era of Phantasmagoria etc. is in this band too. The music is rock'n'roll, rockabilly, psychobilly, nice and sinister: one could imagine a burlesque routine to any one of them. I remember first hearing "New Rose" on John Peel's show late one night - maybe the first time it was played on the BBC ("Captain Sensible - what a great name" he said) and was instantly a fan of The Damned, and whilst loving my rock loud, fast and filthy, can well appreciate all the wider directions they've taken over the last 40 + years (good grief! are we all really in our 60s?).
