Punk is not dead. Punk is alive and kicking and we pretty much owe this in a large extent to The Damned. The band that led the British punk movementin the 70s together with groups like Sex Pistols and The Clash. 40 years later it's safe to call The Damned the wise gentlemen of the punk. Fortunately, these days theres still plenty of issues to kick against and that exactly what this band is still doing with great dedication. After a few line-up changes, The Damned still plays with the two original members, lead vocalist Dave Vanian and lead-guitarist Captain Sensible, who have been there from the very start in 1976 (!!).
