Hammer Damage

Hammer Damage was a rock band from Akron, Ohio that performed from 1978 until 1982.

Hammer Damage was founded in 1978 by Mike Hammer and Dave Zagar (a.k.a Donny Damage) after their split from the Rubber City Rebels.

The original line-up included George Cabaniss on guitar, Scott Winkler on bass, Damage on guitar and Hammer on drums.The Hammer Damage Band started out in 1978 and quickly built a strong following in the Akron-Kent music scene. They also enjoyed some modest success in Cleveland.

Some of the band's highlights included opening for the B-52's and Public Image at the Cleveland Agora and several shows in NYC with the Dead Boys.

The band released a couple of singles and appeared on a compilation of Ohio bands.

After some extended trips to New York and LA, and several line-up changes, the band finally fizzled out around 1982.

Hammer Damage contributed a song, "Noise Pollution" to the "Bowling Balls From Hell II" LP on Clone Records.
