Along with Ray Burns (a.k.a Captian Sensible) he was co-founder and drummer of the UK punk powerhouse The Damned who had such hits as New Rose in ’76 and the perenial anthem Smash It Up.
The Damned were on-again/off-again through out the late 70’s and early 80’s and Scabies often rejoined the line-up before permanently severing from the group in 1995 over a dispute with Sensible and other members over re-released materials.
Rat Scabies also drummed in a later incarnation of goth group Nosferatu and had a solo effort called Rat Scabie’s Runners
Most notably, Scabies has followed in his father’s footsteps to research the Holy Grail and the mystery of Rennes-le-Château, and is the subject of the book Rat Scabies and the Holy Grail.
