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.
