Phantasmagoria. No not the 1985 Album that finally killed off for good any illusions that
THE DAMNED where a proper Punk band, but an evening (and afternoon for scared-ey cats) of Victorian inspired weird spooky marvelous-ness that our nineteenth century ancestors where so good at, and not a pickled two headed baby in a jar in sight. It's all to be held in what has to be the ultimate setting for this kind of thing, THE JOHN RYLANDS LIBRARY. So Ladies & Gentlemen, ROLL UP! ROLL UP! Details below.

I had virtually forgotten about Bob Carlos Clarke until I saw this image (didn't know it was the album cover for the Damned), he doesn't get mentioned much but for the first 10 years of my photographic life he was the only Pro I knew about!
