The Damned The Black Album on Numbered Limited Edition 200g 2LP

Also Available on Numbered Limited Edition Colored 2LP

Every Damned record is different. And every one takes the band’s signature sound in a new direction. The Black Album is no exception, perhaps the band’s most ambitious of their excellent discography. This double LP follow-up to the superb Machine Gun Etiquette (also available from Drastic Plastic) is the fourth full-length release by the British punk founding-fathers. The LP originally came out in July of 1980, making this its 24th anniversary.

This sprawling multi-faceted masterpiece is comprised of traditional punk rock, dark lyrical introspection, haunting sounds, and one side of hard-edged live recordings. It further explores the musical boundaries The Damned were clearly eager to avoid rather than embrace. From opener, “Waiting for the Blackout,” through “13th Floor Vendetta” (alluding to the movie The Abominable Dr. Phibes), to its side-length “Curtain Call,” The Damned prove why they are the most referential and chameleon-like of all the original punk innovators. And why they remain one of the best.
