Live at the Roxy (1977)

Back to Gallery

The Roxy Club was opened in Covent Garden by promoters Andrew Czezowski and Susan Carrington on 1 January 1977; following a dispute over rent, their involvement ended just four and a half months later with a gig on St George’s Day by Siouxsie & the Banshees.
The photograph on the sleeve of the posthumous album was taken after a Damned gig, when the ceiling tiles had been punched out by pogo-ers. (The ‘Live at CBGBs’ stamp and the graffito on this copy were presumably added by a member or fan of the band Slander.)
