Damned 1st Anniversary concert poster.
[London]: [Stiff Records], 1977. Rare lithographic poster for the Damned’s 1st Anniversary Gigs at London’s legendary Marquee Club in July 1977. There were four dates scheduled but most of the shows were cancelled after an argument with the Marquee management. The Damned insisted on hanging up backdrop posters of Dave Vanian designed by Barney Bubbles, and when the Marquee objected because it obscured their famous logo Jake (Riviera, The Damned’s manager and Stiff co-founder) pulled the shows. The poster measures approx. 30″ by 20″ and is in good condition. Creased where folded, (some of the posters were folded by Stiff Records for mailing), additional light creasing and wear to edges. A presentable copy of this scarce and historic punk poster.
