Quick quiz: Which punk-rock band were the first to release a UK single, UK album, and officially first British band to be called ‘punk’? If you answered ‘Sex Pistols’ – you are wrong.
The Damned aren’t only the original British punk rockers, but the orignal goth punks, and they have just announced a lengthy UK tour for 2018.
This comes after their storming performance at British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park earlier this month.
