When i spoke to Algy after a Tank gig i was lead to believe that Rat was one of the main reasons he left.

I think they could all be difficult, and drink and drugs had effect to I imagine? Lt Kudu.

I think Rat was the best and the worst of The Damned
His drumming is without comparison and he was always hustling for the next deal seeing as the others were rather lazy. But that drive seems to have upset others and it was a shame. Sensible is a great player and songwriter but he has, by his own admission, been an awkward sod who seemed to fuck things up for fun.

Scabies always has a new project going. His Sinclairs stuff is good fun.

I would like to see him back with them. Life is just too short!

Been watching the Damned Show videos on YT. Sensible says they were lashed up during the making of the Smash It Up video and it kicked off between them.

Well that’s dampened my ardour slightly. Tickets coming in at around eighty quid each

I wonder if the passing of a certain band member from a similar band was a factor for getting the band back together while they can

Really I have to say £80.00 to see the damned? No thanks but money was probably the only way to make it possible without Rat and the Captain killing each other joking, but a bit cynical at that price, even though it is original line up, I prefer Damned as they are now to be honest. Lt Kudu.
