The Damned have revealed that the rock’n’roll icon Slim Jim Phantom will be joining the band on the road in support on 27 January 2018 at Dundee's Caird Hall. The Brooklyn-born rockabilly legend is renowned for his expertise as the drummer of the Stray Cats, spearheading the neo-rockabilly movement of the early 80s. He has also worked with some of the world’s greatest artists, most notably Phantom, Rocker and Slick. With his sound, style and image that remain as fresh today as ever, Slim Jim Phantom will excite and inspire audiences on the Evil Spirits UK Tour.
Formed in 1976, The Damned were the first British punk band to commercially release both a single and an album, as well as take their music Stateside, with their first US voyage taking place in 1977. They are the originators of the goth punk movement and have inspired a countless number of bands that have gone on to see huge global success.
Fans should expect blistering performances of the likes of the immortal ‘New Rose’ – recently votedthe‘Best Punk Song Ever’ by Kerrang! Magazine - and defiant classics ‘Neat Neat Neat’, ‘Love Song', ‘Smash It Up’, as well as much more.
