Smashing It Up: a Decade of Chaos with The Damned
The Sex Pistols, The Damned and The Clash were the originators of British punk rock. In 1976, they were a three-pronged attack on the self-satisfied rock elite and the inspiration to a new generation of music fans: the fans that would define the future.
Putting The Dammed in context for the first time, Smashing It Up is the history of this important band and their original members. It's also packed with their encounters with Marc Bolan, America, members of Pink Floyd, and their always strained relationship with the music business.
Smashing It Up draws on interviews by the author with the original band members, as well as its associates and eye witnesses to their chaotic journey.
