Reviews & Opinions

PAT GILBERT, RECORD COLLECTOR, 1993: The high-quality, 15-track rarities compilation brings together a selection of curios from the turn of the 80s, when The Damned were back with a vengeance after their 18-month split. B-Sides like the thuggish 'Burlgar' and the ethereal - yes, that's right, ethereal - 'Sugar And Spite' sit comfortably next to obscure recordings like 'Over The Top', a Damned/Motorhead collaboration which turned up on the flip of the 'Heads 'Bomber' 45, and 'Sea Gulls', an atmospheric piece that was coupled with a version of 'White Rabbit' for a German-only 7". Musically, this isn't the most coherent of sets, but it does provide CD owners with a chance to hear several tracks until now available only on vinyl. And, the packaging and sleeve-notes are, digipaks aside, first class.
