The Damned are still going strong , maybe even stronger these days . This dvd show's a reunion concert in 1988.It's a great idea to have the first half of the gig with Brian James on guitar and Captain Sensible on bass.Playing the songs the way they were meant to be played. All the classics are here Neat Neat Neat , New Rose . Brian James has a style far removed from Captain Sensible and splitting the gig into old and new makes you realise how different the Damned became with Captain on guitar . Damned mk1 were true rock and roll , while mk2 became classic eccentric punk.
The only thing that will soon get on your nerves is the video DJ who talks over the start of each song so you miss the classic bass line to Love Song , by the time he stops nattering the Damned are just about into the first chorus. Dave Vanian show's that not only does he swagger like a front man , I would go as far to say he is the best front man of all time .His singing has imroved and this dvd shows his true vocal ability.
Final Damnation is a must for any guitar bassed music fan.
The extras are not bad either , with a great 2001 interview with Brian James .

Bought it for my daughter, who is a massive Damned fan. She has no complains, which speaks volumes. A very underrated band, who always bring a smile to one's face! Happily, they are still going strong.

Excellent gig but why is the bloke doing commentary before the songs, and over the music? Who is he? Does he matter?Ruined it for me I'm afraid.

Even the VHS release of this show released in the USA is better than the UK/USA DVD offered.
Find the VHS tape where songs are performed without overdubs and narration.
Interesting interviews are spread throughout the tape just like in Scorsese's THE LAST WALTZ.
Why Sanctuary had to ruin a 5-Star product is pathetic.
Refunds and appologies should be provided until a proper release is manufactured.
