AllMusic Review by

Adding to the stack of live material from U.K. punk legends the Damned, Tiki Nightmare: Live in London captures the band's full performance from a 2002 gig while touring in support of their 2001 album, Grave Disorder. Featuring only consistent Damned member Dave Vanian on vocals as well as Captain Sensible on guitar, the band burns through a few Grave Disorder tunes as well as touching on punk classics like "New Rose" and "Neat, Neat, Neat." Captain Sensible also injects some humor into the otherwise rugged set with a between-set rendition of the Rodgers & Hammerstein number "Happy Talk," which he somehow scored a number one hit with in the U.K. in 1982.
