What a truly wonderful year for the Damned. The English band released an incredibly well-received album, Evil Spirits (their first in ten years!!), and hit the road to share songs from it and other works. David Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxymoron, Pinch and Paul Gray – all original or long-term members – are even getting ready for more shows, including additional fall US dates. Photographer Alex Crick went to the July Seattle show, and shared some lovely goth photos of the Damned. Opening for the evening was Rome, Italy’s Giuda.
