Local band and original Punks, The Piranhas, supported the Damned on their recent 40th Anniversary gig at The Brighton Dome.



The Piranhas have always written songs with some what tongue in cheek lyrics and catchy tunes.
Here's their set from that night.

Enjoy!

Punk40 - The Damned - 24th November 2016 - The Dome, Brighton

 

It seem appropriate that my very last posts celebrating 40 Years of Punk, is from the Damned's 40th Anniversary Tour. It was an amazing night, packed out with a crowd that was there for a good time.

We were not disappointed. The night started well with great support from Original Brighton Punk's the Piranhas (or Piranhas 4 as they now call themselves) - I'll post their set a bit later.

Captain Sensible was a great host and Dave Vanian was at the top of his game. 

On the night they played the first ever British punk LP - Damned, Damned, Damned as well as a whole host of hits from their extensive back catalogue.

    Mr Rotten's Songbook - an open letter




    An open letter to John Lydon & Public Image Ltd

     

    3rd December 2016

    Dear John/ PIL

    I would like to compliment you on the wonderful new book that you are releasing – Mr Rotten’s Songbook, it certainly looks like a great quality item

    I am writing to vent my frustration and sadness about this though. I don’t disagree that it is a quality product but you are pricing your fans out of the market.

    John, you come from a working class background and I think I need to point out that a very large number of your fans are working class. We are NOT high income earners but we are very loyal to you and the products that you release. BUT we cannot afford this sort of money, no matter how fantastic the book is. Yet we would all love to support you by buying a copy and parting with our hard earned cash..

    I belong to a lot of PIL fans sites/blogs and facebook groups and a large number of us feel the same – we feel that we are being edged out of fandom to make way for an elite group of fans that are higher income earners. This has upset a lot of us. Our loyalty and dedication to PIL IS NOT IN QUESTION.

    Very few of us could afford Mr Rotten’s Scrapbook.

    Again few of us can afford the vinyl Super Deluxe Boxset releases of Album and Metal Box – due out in a week or so.

    And now many (not a few) are also being denied the chance to own a copy of the SongBook.

    We buy your records, CD’s posters, clothes etc and go to your gigs. We love your music and many of us have been with you since day one.

    Please consider that it feels like you are alienating us.

    I am asking you to look into 2 options to help make us feel loved and wanted again J, please.

    Would you consider releasing further copies of the Song Book in a standard softback (paper back release) without any signed/handwritten messages at a lower affordable price?

     I think that most people would be willing to part with between £30- £50 for this option (I could be wrong, I could be right?)

    Or alternatively release a digital download version where the production costs are minimal?

    This will give all fans the chance of owning this unique insight into your work, so that the many and not the few can fully appreciate it?

    Please, please read and consider what I have said and asked – a reply would be wonderful.

    Thank You

    Steve

    Ps I have posted this open letter on a few fan sites as I wish others to consider what I have said and hopefully voice their own feelings – I think you’ll find that we would all love the chance to own a copy
