NEVER SAID THEY SUCKED.


I was listening to early punk rock earlier, primarily stuff that I never got around to buying. Back then it was usually a lack of funds and having to prioritize. Some bands though put me off from the start. The Damned are a very good example of the latter. I never took the leap and bought anything of theirs. The first few LPs were everywhere and not disliked by me. I just couldn't, and still can't, take a singer dressed like Dracula seriously, particularly in a punk band. Never mind fucking Captain Sensible's goofy ass shades They were "Nope!" then and they're "Nope!" now. But, holy shit, they sure sound good.

I always felt the same way about the Damned - they had some good singles but I was never moved to buy anything.
