To coincide with the 11th Studio album of the same title, myself, gig buddy Philippa and my camera hit the road for 5 of the tour dates with The Damned. Photos taken at Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham and London.
These guys are an absolute pleasure to photograph. So full of raw energy when performing live and are great to photograph. Based in Teesside, these guys are going places after winning the M2TM at Trillians in Newcastle and will be playing the Jagermeister Stage at Bloodstock 2017.

Headlining Friday Night’s Black Rose Ball event at The Fulford Arms in York on 9th September 2016.
My photographs do no justice to how amazing they sound. Probably one of my favourite bands I discovered in 2016.
Fell in love with this band back in 1986 when I bought their album ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told’ which has remained one of my all time top 10 albums. Photographed at Fibbers in York on 14th October 2016. Even got my copy of ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told’ signed by Des, Jim and Mark. Thank you, guys 🙂
Causing anarchy, chaos and destruction since 1976, The Damned will always be one of my all-time favourite bands ever. Read more about my love and appreciation for this band HERE
I first started to work with Skeletal Family back in 2004 and I have become their official band photographer, responsible for promotional photography of the band, live performance shoots, web mistress to their website and social media. Here’s a selection of images from 2009, when their original vocalist Anne-Marie re-joined the band after a 20 year absence from the music scene.
Photographs taken at Think Tank? in Newcastle, Saturday 15th October 2016.
