Black leather, black leather, kill kill kill! On a brand new episode of FURTHER REEDING we’re digging into the pre-apocalyptic, sea-side pleasures of the 1963 sci-fi classic THE DAMNED (aka WE ARE THE DAMNED), directed by the great Joseph Losey and starring Macdonald Carey, Shirley Anne Field, and – of course – our boy Oliver Reed! It’s about a group of irradiated kids having to live underground as prep for the upcoming nuclear holocaust. Cheery stuff! Have a listen!
