Various Artists – Damaged Goods 1988-2018


Seems like only yesterday but it’s 30 years since the first Damaged Goods release!

As part of the anniversary celebrations we’re releasing this compilation bringing together a selection of top tracks, deep cuts, lost gems and personal favourites.
Punk, garage and indie are all well represented, with artists including Thee
Headcoats, Holly Golightly, Johnny Moped, Manic Street Preachers, Cowbell, Pete Molinari, Fabienne Delsol, Thee Dagger Debs and many more!
The past is a foreign country and there’s certainly been many changes in the musical climate since 1988. Formats have come and gone (and returned!). Online, digital and streaming music were all pure science fiction then. But good music is as they say timeless. With this in mind we bring you some of the best music Damaged Goods Records has released since its humble beginnings in Ian Damaged’s front room.

With 500 releases to date it was difficult to whittle this collection down onto two pieces of vinyl or two shiny compact discs but we’re happy with the result. As a handy best-of or taster for further investigation we hope you’ll enjoy this selection.

Place it on your turntable, crank up the volume and enjoy!
