Never miss another 'The Damned' show
Friday 13th: The Damned + Theatre Of Hate + Ruts DC
This event takes place at The Roundhouse, which has achieved Gold Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Instrumental in kick-starting the original punk rock scene, The Damned have never been afraid to push themselves musically and throughout their years together have cruised through whatever areas of progressive, psychedelic, goth and pop rock that take their fancy. Smash it up with the original gothic punks - back with original members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible.

80's Post-punk gothic rockers led by by Kirk Brandon (who later formed Spear Of Destiny) joined by Stan Stammers and John 'Boy' Lennard alongside Adrian Portas (New Model Army) and Danny Farrant (The Buzzcocks). Their back catalogue of classics include Legion, Do You Believe In The Westworld?, Original Sin and Rebel Without A Brain and their music takes a similar path to John Lydon's PiL.

The Ruts DC were formed in 1981 by the rhythm section and guitarist of The Ruts. The Ruts had had three whirlwind years of success and much critical acclaim - excellent releases included the singles "Babylons Burning" ,"Jah War"," Something That I Said" and "Staring At The Rude Boys" and the albums "The Crack", "Grin And Bear It" and "Animal Now'.
The late great John Peel at Radio 1 strongly supported the band's debut single "In A Rut", which was released on the label 'People Unite' by reggae band Misty In Roots, as they shared the common fight against racism and the National Front. They were later invited to play live for him, and their 1979 "Peel Sessions" set was eventually released as a 12-inch in 1986.
The band continue to tour and record, with most recent album "Music Must Destroy" being voted 'Album of the Year' by Vive Le Rock magazine.
