Tonight at The Dome, Johnny Moped (the man) and his four assistant fellows – who were likely to have been Slimey Toad, Jacko Pistorious, Robert Brook and Martin Parrott – belted through a decent set of early punk sounding ditties, that were enjoyed by the crowd present. I mean lead singer Johnny is no spring chicken and yet there he is still at it – well done man.

The huge swell of support from their fans, critics and aficionados has propelled the Tony Visconti produced ‘Evil Spirits’ to the top and has shown the world just how relevant The Damned still are, 42 years after their inception.
In fact during tonight’s 20 track performance, I had actually forgotten how many genres The Damned have covered in their music. They were more melodic than I had recalled and there was the Captain’s ever present forays into metal guitar. They even had a chap pop up a few times to the left of the stage, who would add to their sound with a trumpet.

Another one:

Did they forget something?

Perhaps it was all the extra cash they raised beyond that required to record the last album, so they've decided to spend it on another one?

Let's hope so! I think the working title is: "You wanted more guitar? Here you are..."  ;D

Apart from The D***ed, it looks like The Sensible Gray Cells are also planning something new (new drummer is now the guy from J. Moped band):

Apparently the session at Rockfield brought (at least) one new song, which will be released on a "best of" collection in October:
