Whatever the reason, it was enough to see Rat Scabies leap I Fall - The Damned - Damned Damned Damned / Music For Pleasure (Vinyl from the ship. In-part, the critical lambasting can be attributed to an extremely partial music press that could sense sudden sea change.
But Music For Pleasure is not the lacklustre affair it seemed at the time. I fully admit, as a Damned devotee at the time, I all-too-swiftly let it slip to the back of the record rack in order to concentrate on more obvious items. In a year when essential albums seemed to be release in wage draining knots, if an album didn't provide an instant all-encompassing accessibility — as had been the case with 'Damned Damned Damned', it would become swiftly lost in the shadows.
There is an irony to 'Music For Pleasure' though, which couldn't have been recognised upon release by even the most perceptive reviewers. The use of twin guitars, with Lu feeding sweetly off Bryan Jams' scorching lead, scatters across the album and attains I Fall - The Damned - Damned Damned Damned / Music For Pleasure (Vinyl kind of buzz-saw intensity that would soon become an essential ingredient of a swathe of bands in the latter seventies.
The suggestion here inst that 'Music For Pleasure' is a buried classic, it isn't, but it is intriguing to note that, even given the much-maligned Nick Mason treatment, the album was not as adrift as many believed at the time. For this reason, this reissue offers a great chance to revisit and there are moments when the intensity of those guitars lifts the the whole thing to a higher level. This was a band struggling to discover that next step and, in places, the struggle alone becomes the key.
All too often however, the song LP) becomes stretched and repetitive. Good to hear Lol Coxhall's sax inclusions on 'You Know', which closes the album. Bythe world had changed and The Damned had changed. In addition came the celebrated and frenetic Machine Gun Etiquette album, generally regarded as a return to form, and the extraordinary experimental double album Untitled The Black Albumwhich deliberately flew in the face of punk convention. Into this mix came The Damned's Strawberries.
A lovable curiosity indeed, a pop-tinged mix up of all that had come before and featuring ex-Eddie and the Hot rods bassist Paul Gray with Roman Jugg on keyboards. With Bryan James lost beyond the rear view mirror, Captain Sensible boldly doubles on guitar. As if to distance itself from the times, the sleeve declares "This is a synth free album," instantly wrong-footing anyone expecting more of the dark retrospection of Untitled.
The irony is that Strawberries actually seems perfectly in-tune with synth-tinged chartage. This could 'only' be an early eighties album and offers no hints of the band's successful oncoming 'fattening' — in the musical sense — soon to grace mainstream airwaves with 'Eloise'.
Sparkling like shards of coloured light through stained glass windows are the unexpected psyche gems, 'Life Goes On', 'Generals' and 'Under The Floor Again'.
That these escaped so many at the time, increases the credibility of this re-issue. In typical Damned irony, no hits were spawned from Strawberriesarguably one of the most accessible albums in their entire canon.
While it didn't change anybody's life, it remains difficult not to feel a certain fondness for Strawberriesor indeed for all three albums. They all — even Music For Pleasure - offer a sense of abandon. At all times, it is a band battling to discover the true heart of their personal dynamic.
While that often set then off in an unwise course, it still seems pure, in retrospect, at least. Good to meet you again, you daft buggers. Share this article:.
