THE DAMNED and LORDS OF THE NEW CHURCH legend BRIAN JAMES rocks back with a very special London show and a new single!
Taking place on Friday 29 January at the capital's fabled Hope & Anchor in Islington - where The Damned filmed their infamous 'New Rose' clip - the gig celebrates forty years of punk and is dubbed Year Zero Special accordingly. Organised by promoters Rockaway Beach, support comes from RAGE DC and tickets are priced £12, available here.
It's been a very active year for James. He appeared in Wes Orshoski's acclaimed Damned documenatary Don't You Wish That We Were Dead?, while his latest album the Guitar That Dripped Blood getting rave reviews throughout the press. A limited edition coloured vinyl edition released for Record Store Day sold out in double quick time, but fear not! Another run will be made available to coincide with the gig. In the meantime, you can get the CD here.
James also has a limited edition single out this month in the Easy Action Records Singles Club series. The vinyl 7" features 'Walkin' 'Round Naked' from The Guitar That Dripped Blood backed with a version of the Damned classic 'Born To Kill' and comes with a postcard signed by the man himself. Get it here!
