INTERVIEW! Rat Scabies tells us about how The Damned reformed and also in depth on how they came together in 1976The Damned are one of the classic punk bands. They formed in 1976 and released the first single/album and were the first to tour and the first to split up. The classic line up made two albums before continuing in many forms over the years with lots of great moments.

The divisions in the band seemed to great that it seemed unimaginable that they would ever reform that first line up but as Rat Scabies explains here nothing in impossible as he details how it happens, what to expect and how they came together in 1976 – lots of new information in the interview about how Sid Vicious was nearly the singer and what ever happened to Dave Zero and much more stuff…
