They did a punk covers album for Vinyl Japan in which they anhiliated 20 punk classics (a couple of the roughest out-takes appear on the CD version of Takin’ The Piss) and then released lots of singles on labels in Germany, France, Japan and America. They are well and truly back on the scene, they’ve had a few 7” singles out in the states and toured over there 3 or 4 times in the last few years packing them in on the West coast and also recording some of the best stuff of their long career.Another album Shanks Pony (Damgood 94) followed in 1995, another stormer and a live album (Cacophony Now, Damgood 141) was released in mid 1997 which was recorded at the Hope N Anchor in October 1996. They’re always entertaining and still, in my opinion, one of the great DG bands.The town lies below at river level, curving round to occupy a south-easterly trending valley (The Brook”), in which lies the High Street.
Although the dockyard has long been closed and is now being redeveloped into a business and residential community as well as a museum featuring the famous submarine, HMS Ocelot, major naval buildings remain as the focus for a flourishing tourist industry.
A fantastic album, still one of the best albums ever on DG.
From there on there was no stopping them, playing to over 20 people sometimes at their own shows in London, they then headed out on their first (and only) UK tour, drinking their way around the country followed by a full European tour the year after.
Initially a refitting base, it became a shipbuilding yard; from then until the late 19th century, further expansion of the yard took place.
In its time, many thousands of men were employed at the dockyard, and many hundreds of vessels were launched there, including HMS Victory which was built there in the 1760s.
