The Damned - Wait For The Blackout


On this date in 1982, The Damned released their thirteenth single, "Wait For The Blackout". It was backed by "Jet Boy Jet Girl". The A side appeared on their fourth album, The Black Album, which had been released in 1980. The B side was not a Damned tune but rather Captain Sensible and the Softies. The London punk band, despite several breakups along the way, are still together.
