Weekend Punk Pick: The Damned

The Damned have the unique honor of being the first British punk band to release a single and an album, edging out the Sex Pistols in both categories. And their debut album, Damned Damned Damned, was as good as Brit punk got before they took an ill-advised turn for goth. Guitarist Brian James was just smoking it on songs like "Neat Neat Neat" and he had an amazing chemistry with Rocky Horror-reject looking bassist Captain Sensible (who later assumed guitar duties).
