The Damned's first disc DAMNED DAMNED DAMNED was released by independent upstart record label Stiff Records and was produced by Nick Lowe.  Brian James, Captain Sensible, David Vanian and Rat Scabies made up the group line-up. Nick captured the band's fast, raw and loud sound in the studio.. Unlike the polished and overdubbed Sex Pistols' NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS,  DAMNED DAMNED DAMNED is the definitive UK punk album.  All of the songs were written by Brian James except Fish (a left over from his days in London SS) and 1970 (known as I Feel Alright on the album).  On several tracks you can hear the band singing at the same time making for an interesting sound. 

I really like this album because the sound is crude, raw and fast.  The single New Rose (recorded on a 4-track mixer) became the first UK punk single to be released.  They toured the US in support of the album (the tour's accommodations were less than ideal as the band had to take donations just to get back home).  But they were the first of their class to perform in the US.  If you want to hear how punk rock should sound, pick up a copy of Damned Damned Damned.
