Here is two different line-ups of the Damned 10 years apart both featuring original members Dave Vanian and Rat Scabies. The Philadelphia show was recorded from the audience and has good sound quality. The sound quality on the demo is very good.

  1. Thanks for this post; I am always a sucker for something from the Damned.

  2. Cheers, you can never have too much Damned !!

  3. Have you all been able to download the Damned shows? Statistics on Megaupload show zero downloads. I'm just wondering if something is wrong.

  4. Okay convertido. I don't know why Megaupload isn't giving correct stats. I though maybe people weren't interested in these Damned uploads even though there has been hundreds of page views.

  5. Cheers matey love a bit of the damned on friday afternoon

  6. Just found your blog yesterday and have been downloading stuff like crazy. Thanks for the Damned, Buzzcocks, Pistols, PiL, Magazine, Siouxie, Generation X, uh... I think you got the idea. I also loved the photos of the cassette tapes. I still have many of the same tapes too and looking at them as photos made me realize how cool they are as an artwork. Once again, thanks for the great music and historical finds.
