The Doomed - Electric Ballroom (1978)

The holy grail of recordings for me. Being a huge Damned fanatic and a massive early Motorhead fan, this is a dream come true. There are other recordings of The Doomed period, but this is the best one I've come across. There's nothing more to say about this other than enjoy.



  1. I don't know what's going on.....but i'm juxt into a motordamned period

    thanx for thizzzz

  2. thanks tons for this. I have a bit of a "Damned problem" myself. I am looking forward to this!

  3. Awesome post but just like the Pauline Murray Track 16 "I'm Alright" is corrupt.



  4. Once again, cheers Elvis. Track 16 is available on it's own now.

  5. Any chance you could re-up this? I managed to get the secondary link with track 16 to work, but after multiple tries for the main link it just keeps telling me the structure of the file is damaged. I just stumbled across your blog yesterday and have found some fantastic stuff I've been searching for, but this Doomed stuff is long buried treasure I thought nobody had!

    Anyways, thanks!

  6. Hi Johnny, new link uploaded, I hope you enjoy it. Personally it's one of my fave Damned live sets ....they cover the berts; it doesn't get any better than that imo.

    Many thanke for taking the time to comment. It really is comments like yours that remind me why I started this blog in the first place.

    If there are any probs with the new link let me know...I've been out on the god knows what I've uploaded :)

  7. Thanks so much Neil! This link worked perfectly and I'm listening to the set now and love it at least as much as I expected to!

    Again, I really appreciate you putting all this work into such a great blog, there are so many gems here and it's obvious that this is a true labor of love for you!

  8. No problems Johnny amd thanks for the support.
