The most accessible comp featuring "Where You Gonna Go?" by the Unrelated Segments is "Garage Beat '66, Vol. 7" (Sundazed, 2007). The band was from Detroit. You informational notes... and I've got a few minutes to kill at Panera Bread.

  Sat. 5/16/09 7:33pm Terre T:

To Todd 76% Uncertain- That's awesome u guys got to open for The DAMNED---so cool !!!
To Matteo in Italia & Lewy in the UK- Thanx for all the kind words! Good music is universal!

Hi and thanx Peteski, Andrea, Matt, Davie,Tom , Smokin J, exPhillyette, Stu, Greg, Topkat, Dr.B.,Drunk John Lennon,Woj,and Hank!!!

And thanx for the info notes!

To Patricia Vanian- If this is the real Mrs.Vanian---Ur a lucky gal! Its not a stretch to say that Dave is as handsome as he was back in thee day, not to mention very elegant and cool. (If this is a wanna-be Mrs. Vanian ---too bad he's taken!)

It was such an honor meeting The Damned and having them play my show/WFMU. I will admit my eyes welled up with tears at various points because I couldn't believe they were playing my show---as engineer Diane Kamikaze said: "The Damned were one of the first bands I ever connected with and got me into punk. The DAMNED, in a sense MADE me the person I am today."

I will also say I have had TONS of bands on my show, many of them of The DAMNED's stature, and i'm never nervous (very psyched, yes, but not intimidated or freekin out), but with the DAMNED i was a nervous stuttering fool!

To the DAMNED-Thank you so much. You make life happier for so many people!
