The History of the World (Part 1)

The History of the World (Part 1)” is a single by the Damned, released in 1980 on Chiswick Records.

It was co-produced by the band with Hans Zimmer and was included on the band’s The Black Album.

The record was released in both 7″ and 12″ formats, and reached No. 51 in the UK Singles Chart.

Apprantly… Writing in Smash Hits magazine, reviewer David Hepworth wrote,

“The Damned seem to be making overtures to the mainstream, knocking timidly on the door of daytime radio and asking to be let in.

With keyboards to the fore instead of the usual guitars, this is not unlike the kind of half baked effort you’d expect from Supertramp, if they were trying to grab a bit of new wave credibility”
