The Damned - In Dulce Decorum

Album: Anything (MCA,1986) Chart pos: UK#72

This little gem was featured in a Miami Vice episode (the one where Larry Fishbone is a bent prison guard) which is odd seeing a band such as The Damned was going through their goth phase which meant it contrasted heavily with the garish pastel suits and espadrilles.

In Dulce Decorum is a lost gem for their major-label era. Despite the overproduction which makes the band sound like some nondescript stadium rock band, it still holds up well.
