Produced, for numerous arcane reasons, by Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, the second Damned album, Music for Pleasure, was considered a disaster at the time and led to their being dropped from Stiff and their first break-up.

Music for Pleasure is the second studio album by English punk rock band the Damned.

The sleeve was designed by Barney Bubbles (including the cover painting). Released on 18 November 1977, Music for Pleasure failed to make the UK Top 100 album chart.
