So, their Prog roots are showing 'eh? Obviously still spending too much time hanging round with the Captain.

Sorry you missed a fair bit - I hate those 'club nites' (more like early nights!) venues use to maximise beer sales. Not good.

Steve Lamacq returns to Maida Vale for an annual Christmas party, and this year we're painting the holiday season punk. The Damned will be performing live from the legendary Maida Vale studios, ahead of their huge tour in 2018. They'll be joined by fellow punk pioneers Ruts DC, who'll be providing us with a second blistering live performance. Brix Smith Start, ex-member of The Fall, is behind the decks, spinning some classic punk tunes in between sets. And we'll be joined by football legend Stuart Pearce, who'll be telling us about his devotion to punk.

There are lots more where these came from – here are 20 that nearly made it, should have made it, still might make it if I don’t send this article off soon…

The Damned ‘Damned Damned Damned’
32 minutes that changed the World. Is she really going out with him?

The Rolling Stones ‘Exile On Main Street’
No, side 3 isn’t that great – but the rest of it certainly is.

Iggy & The Stooges ‘Raw Power’
James Williamson on guitar. Enough said.

The Mega City Four ‘Tranzophobia’
You had to be there. Thankfully I was.

The Gas ‘Emotional Warfare’
– The best album you’ve never heard by the best group you’ve never heard.

TV Smith’s Cheap ‘R.I.P. – everything must go!’
The best album you’ve never heard by the best group you’ve never heard (slight return).

The Godfathers ‘Hit By Hit’
Their early singles collected. Mighty.

The Ruts ‘The Crack’
You were wondering where this one had got to weren’t you? To be honest it would / should have been in the top 10, but, well, that would just be weird wouldn’t it? Well, wouldn’t it?!?

‘The Crack’ is re-issued on the 8th February 2019 having been Re-mastered by Tim Turan at Turan Audio, and then cut to vinyl at Abbey Road Studios, the release comes complete with a digital download.
