And then it just get better.
Touted as the first ever punk record in the UK (see KBD records in the comment box - thanks for correcting me) to be put on Vinyl It was said that they rushed it out to be the first, but if this is an example of a rushed out song, then lets have more. I know most people will have this, but I am not so sure that they will have the excellent cover of the Beatles "Help" on the b-side. So here it is, just for you.
You can hear by the scratches that I played this endlessly, and have never tired of it.
More etching trivia on this one. The Damned were always known as a fun band, especially with members such as Rat Scabies and Captain Sensible. I assume these etchings are from the Damned. On side a it has "Is This A Record?" and on side b "Damned Beatles" a reference to their cover of help.
Band: The Damned
1. New Rose
Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:
if you like this and you don't already have the Damned debut album then go and buy it now, you will not be disappointed:
