Machine Gun Etiquette is the third album from The Damned. A change in the line up saw Captain Sensible switch from Bass Guitar to Lead Guitar and keyboards. David Vanian and Rat Scabies return along with new bassist Algy Ward. After performing as The Doomed until they legally got the band name back Chiswick decided to sign the band to a record deal. Love Song became their first single and Top #20 hit along with a performance on Britain's Top of the Pops. Smash it Up Parts One and Two was also a Top #40 hit as well.
Captain Sensible played the guitars, keyboards and bass tracks on the album (except Liar) and the band helped produced the album. David Vanian's vocals are much improved over the last album and he's starting to take his vocals seriously. This would be Algy's only record with the band because he left to form the metal band Tank, Algy was replaced on the next album by old friend and former Eddie and The Hot Rods bassist Paul Gray.
