This single-disc collection from legendary shape-shifting U.K. punk/goth pop outfit the Damned
includes A- and B-sides from the group’s output for the Chiswick label, specifically from the albums Machine Gun Etiquette
(1979) and The Black Album
(1980). Lovingly restored and remastered, the 24-track collection may omit some of the more obscure sides from the era, but career highlights like "I Just Can't Be Happy Today," "The History of the World, Pt. 1," "Disco Man," "Love Song," and "Smash It Up" more than make up for it.
