From the label that collects stuff that might otherwise slip through the cracks, I give you this re-release of the Damned posing as a 60’s era garage/psychedelic band. Although some may say they made a career of doing just that, especially as they continued to disband and reform, some people are considered smart asses. There’s not a lot of info on this disk as to what particular line up of the Damned this is. Ultimately this will likely appeal mostly to hardcore fans of the Damned for its novelty value. Pretty much the same goes for fans of the genre, as it appears to be mostly covers with the exception of a couple songs. The straight forward recordings sound as if they could actually be unearthed originals in all their mono glory. Standouts are “Kicks,” “I Can Only Give You Everything,” “Cold Turkey,” ,and the Kim Fowley penned “The Trip.” “She Lied” is also a good one, coming closest to sounding like a straight up Damned demo recording that somehow slipped into the mix. The most recognizable songs are likely to be the Electric Prunes “I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night” and the Isley Brothers “Nobody But Me.” Nobody needs to hear Nobody But Me again, except maybe by the Dickies on Dogs From the Hare That Bit Us. Now only if the Damned would cover the Electric Prunes “Mass in F Minor,” That sounds sensible, doesn’t it? (Ouch! Sorry!)
