The Damned are an English rock band formed in London in 1976. They were the first punk rock band from the United Kingdom to release a single ("New Rose"), an album (Damned Damned Damned), to have a record on the UK music charts, and to tour the United States. The Damned later evolved into one of the forerunners of the gothic genre.

They have incorporated numerous styles into their music and image, including: garage rock, psychedelic rock, cabaret, krautrock, and the theatrical rock of Screaming Lord Sutch and Alex Harvey. Lead singer Dave Vanian's vocal style has been described as similar to a crooner.
The Damned have dissolved and reformed many times, with Vanian as the sole constant member; the lineups have always included either guitarist Captain Sensible and/or drummer Rat Scabies, who are both founding members. The current line-up is Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxymoron, Pinch and Stu West.

The first part of a three part Live in Mulhouse, France series, this 7" vinyl single features two tracks: "Disco Man" (from the Damned album Molten Lager; recorded Live in Mulhouse, France, June 23, 1994) and "Pretty Vacant" (yes, the Sex Pistols song), which is only available on this EP.

The A Side, "Disco Man", is one of their best-known songs and has gone on to feature on a large number of compilations, also becoming a live favourite.
