The Damned, Northcote Theatre, 22nd March 2024 by Mary Boukouvalas

The Damned are the undisputed, unmatched and unassailable living gods of Punk Rock; and for the very first and final time in 35 years they have reassembled the absolute classic line up of the band, recreating the period in their storied career when they were at their peak creativity and the summit of their influence and swagger.

The Damned have always been brilliant in every iteration, but even then, the combination of Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Rat Scabies and Paul Gray represents the best of the best of this fabled and trailblazing band and it is this quartet who will shortly grace Australia with their presence to perform the highlights from their seminal albums, Machine Gun Etiquette, The Black Album and Strawberries, as well as fan favourites like ‘Neat Neat Neat’, ‘New Rose’ and more.
