PUNK/POP The Damned It was 40 years ago that The Damned em­barked on a se­ries of firsts as a UK punk band: they re­leased UK punk’s first sin­gle ( New Rose), first al­bum ( Damned Damned Damned), and were the first to tour the US. Some may ar­gue about the paucity of ma­te­rial in the past 30 years (a mere four albums), but the core fan­base won’t be un­duly con­cerned. ELEC­TRO-PARTY Dis­clo­sure De­but al­bum Set­tle turned Guy and Howard Lawrence into one of the big­gest things around on its re­lease in 2013. Both it and fol­low-up Cara­cal were rar­i­ties be­cause they were albums which united many dif­fer­ent tribes. Both albums also showed that the Lawrences were also ex­pertly ca­pa­ble of har­ness­ing the tal­ents of their guests like Lorde, The Week­end and Gre­gory Porter. Sup­port on this oc­ca­sion from Kano and SG Lewis. ART The Suit­case Ar­chive In their ca­pac­ity to trig­ger mem­ory, pho­to­graphs have amaz­ing emo­tional res­o­nance. Martina Cleary’s prac­tice-based PhD re­search project traces “sev­eral pho­to­graphic mem­ory jour­neys from the per­sonal to the col­lec­tive”, in­clud­ing a sec­tion on Dorothea Lange’s 1954 visit to Co Clare, with 25 of her pho­to­graphs taken there, from the col­lec­tion of Gerry Mullins, as well as other work by her.
