Watched the new Damned documentary last night in the beautiful Hyde Park Picturehouse. Whilst I welcome any documentary on The Damned I have to say it left me a little disappointed. The documentary lasts just short of 2 hours but it seems to revolve around Rat and Brian and Rat’s money disputes with Sensible. Dave Vanian barely gets a look in. I realise with a band with a history like The Damned there’s only so much you can cover but to ignore the Strawberries album seems crazy.
Having not seen the Manics for a good few years and missing the original Holy Bible tour an opportunity landed my way to get tickets for Wolverhampton and meet up with friends. A good time was had by all.
