Punk legends The Damned return to the Roadmender on Sunday.

The Damned were one of the most popular acts to emerge from the London punk scene, playing their first gig supporting the Sex Pistols at the 100 Club in 1976.

They’re often credited with releasing the ‘first’ punk single, New Rose in 1976. The debut LP Damned, Damned Damned followed in 1977.

During the late 1970s and 1980s, the band split and reformed on a number of occasions while continuing to release albums.

The current line up features singer Dave Vanian, guitarist Captain Sensible, keyboard player Monty Oxymoron, drummer Pinch and bassist Stu West.

Support is by Corby band Topos Locos who play 1960s influenced freakbeat. The band’s track What’s Happening At The Psychiatrist was released on the Fruits De Mer label this year and have a split 7” with Blue Giant Zeta Puppies out for Halloween.

Both play the Northampton venue on Sunday, June 7.

Doors open at 7pm, tickets cost £18 in advance before fees via www.theroadmender.com
