The Damned …A Night of a Thousand Vampires

A Scene Report by Tzina Dovve

Monday October 28th. The London Palladium was the host of the largest vampire gathering in the U.K. yet to come. Teaming up with the legendary film production company Hammer House of Horror, and The Circus of Horrors who opened the night, The Damned managed to make it to the Guinness Book of Records… after 43 years… Fangs, fake blood, capes, coffins, hearses and elegant goth attire all around… The Damned, together with The Circus of Horrors, gave a performance of both music and theatre combined in one… Classic punk songs from the likes of New Rose, Nasty, Plan 9 Channel 7, Neat, Neat, Neat and Wait For The Blackout to the vampiric versions of Eloise, Shadow Of Love and Grimly Fiendish… Phantasmagoria days are back… Former gravedigger and frontman Dave Vanian at his most elegant at 63 and Captain Sensible, as crazy as ever, but still a vamp for the night… The highlight of the evening was the truly magnificent cover version of Bauhaus’s Bela Lugosi’s Dead where Mr. Vanian was Nosferatu in the flesh… A fantastic disguise…

A goth extravaganza and a night to remember for all us vampires who attended… Everyday is a vamp day…
