The Damned: Live Performances - 1991

The list of Damned shows (there may have been other Phantom Chords gigs) for 1991 is believed to include all shows played (lists for some years are very much 'work in progress').


Friday 20 December - Underworld, Camden, London

Comments: See The Phantom Chords.

Friday 13 December - Waterfront, Norwich

Set: New Rose, Disco Man, Plan 9 Channel 7, Born To Kill, Help, Melody Lee, Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, Love Song, Looking At You, Curtain Call, Neat Neat Neat. encore 1 - Purple Haze, Noise Noise Noise, Smash It Up. encore 2 - Folsom Prison Blues, I Feel Alright.

Comments: Support from Dr Spacetoad (not with Captain) (playing an acoustic set) and possibly Virtually Fat Freez.

Tuesday 10 December - Students Union, Leicester Polytechnic

Set: unknown.

Comments: Gig confirmed as having taken place. An item in 'The Mystery Of The Damned Issue 1' fanzine shows Rat Scabies playing guitar and states that 'Pretty Vacant' was played. Though it would have been unusual for 'Pretty Vacant' to be played during this period, the photographic evidence of Rat playing guitar at this show would seem to support this statement.

Monday 9 December - Polytechnic, Leeds

Set: New Rose, Disco Man, Plan 9 Channel 7, Born To Kill, Help, Wait For The Blackout, Melody Lee, Dr. Jekyll & Mr Hyde, Love Song, Looking At You, Curtain Call, Neat Neat Neat, Noise Noise Noise, Smash It Up, I Feel Alright.

Comments: Prior to 'Looking At You', the beginning melody of 'Curtain Call' was played. When 'Curtain Call' was actually played later in the set, it was temporaily stopped when the security were heavy handed with an audience member... and banter ensued before it was restarted.
