Punk pioneers The Damned share their rock 'n' roll wisdom in NME this week. The self-diagnosed insomniacs reveal why their alter egos are so important. "The only reason we came up with a stage name when we started was because we were terrified of being kicked off the dole. It was a way to ensure that no-one at the dole office could wave a copy of NME in our faces and say, 'We know you're in a band, so no money for you'".
