The footage is from an apparently unaired UK TV show called Impact and was filmed December 21st 1977 by one Mike Mansfield.
One of the great surprises here is the only known footage of the five-piece version of The Damned with second guitarist Lu (who is currently playing in PiL, strangely enough) and Jon Moss, later of Culture Club fame, on drums! Also featured are The Rich Kids, former Sex Pistol Glen Matlock’s post-Pistols band with Steve New, Midge Ure (Ultravox) and Rusty Egan (Visage); the amazing Adverts are here and so the great Generation X with vocalist Billy Idol, bassist Tony James (later of Sigue Sigue Sputnik) and Bob “Derwood” Andrews, considered by many (myself included) to be the single best guitarist to come out of the punk rock era.
Just around the corner and miles away...

Not newly discovered.
It's been on YouTube for years.
But it does seem to be a cleaner, sharper copy of the video than I've seen before.

And always worth a look.

Yep, mea culpa, I should've done a 'search' before. (Please ban me, Klaus...)

Good, still worth it in the end.  ;)
