From “Lemmy” filmmaker Wes Orshoski comes the story of the long-ignored pioneers of punk: The Damned, the first U.K. punks on wax and the first to cross the Atlantic. “THE DAMNED: Don’t You Wish That We Were Dead” includes appearances from Chrissie Hynde, Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), Billy Idol, Mick Jones (The Clash), Lemmy and members of Pink Floyd, Black Flag, the Sex Pistols, Blondie, Buzzcocks, and more. Shot around the globe over three years, the film charts the band’s complex history and infighting, as it celebrated its 35th anniversary and found its estranged former members striking out on their own anniversary tour, while still others battle cancer.
Wes Orshoski made his film debut with 2010’s “Lemmy,” the documentary celebrating the life of Motorhead singer Lemmy Kilmister. In addition to film work, Orshoski has for more than 20 years worked as a music journalist and photographer. His work has been published in Mojo, Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Source, and many others.
