The Damned - Anything (US 12 Inch / 1986)

01 Anything (Another Mix) 4:39
02 The Year Of The Jackal 5:54
03 Thanks For The Night 5:38

Completely missed posting this by a few days, as The Damned came swirling through Chicago (90 minute road trip from me) for a show at the House Of Blues on 4/24. Missed the show too, but was enlightened with some pics and videos a few FB friends posted of the event. Damned again. Either way, I figured it was due time to give this release the focus it needs! HD scans and full 16bit FLAC recording from my recent and inexpensive purchase on discogs. I had the twelve inch at one point, but the record was lost in one of those ever-opening holes of my 25+ years of record collecting. Ugh. Moving right along....Thanks again! Enjoy!

    gonna see them in a few weeks and glad to see that they are playing both, their 70s Punk and 80s Goth inspired songs!

    1. Have a great time. I missed my chance...ugh! :/

    by the way, the guitar in the beginning of ANYTHING more than just reminds me of THE CULT around the same time.

    1. There was a specific guitar sound that was going around! :) BTW, thanks for the LOA link. Still thinking about buying it anyway. ;)

    2. Thanks for the Wolfsheim too!

    by the way, I just saw the Damned live, and they played "Anything" as well as some material from Phantasmagoria along with ELOISE and finished strong with Black Rose and Neat Neat Neat ... great show

    1. Lucky you! I missed the Chicago show, only because I found out late and didn't have the $$ for it. Thanks for the GLJ. I recently had found a link for it (by surprise). I haven't cued it up yet.

    2. I have a bunch of new posts coming up this weekend, so stay tuned! ;)
