British punk legends The Damned celebrate the 40th anniversary of their legendary Strawberries album with this limited edition, strawberry scented, pink & red swirl vinyl. This release contains a different version of B4. It is a live recording containing some raucous crowd banter, seemingly culled from Live In Newcastle.

 


If you went straight from 'Damned Damned Damned' to this you'd be a norm to think 'what the fuck happened to these pricks?'. The energy is still present but the snotty punk of their debut is replaced by a true pop sensibility. Never content with knocking out the same thing over and over, 'Strawberries' sees another huge development in the evolution of the bands sound. Who would have thought back in '77 that this band would produce something as delicate as 'Under The Floor Again' or as reflective of 'Life Goes On'. This album should have made them huge. That it's barely spoke of even in Punk circles is more upsetting to me than Boxer getting sent to the slaughterhouse in Animal Farm.
