Brian James & Gaye playing "New Rose"?
« on: January 25, 2013, 11:49:08 AM »
The Facebook page of Brian James reports that he's been re-recording old Damned songs for a new release.
Apparently Gaye is performing on the new version of "New Rose":

Seemed strange to me as well, especially as they were performing these songs live together during 2012.
Rat should be included on at least one song...

Apparently Brian has also worked on a new Brian James Gang album and a possible Lords otNC reunion, so there's NEW stuff to look forward to.  8)

That's a pretty good review and I agree with nearly all of it. Complaints from Damned 'purists' 'cause Brian's re-recorded these songs (again) but the versions are different enough to make it worthwhile.
