More about UK Subs

U.K. SUBS, the punk legend on a hundred thousand leather jackets, continue their constant touring regime, playing to new generations of nations' disaffected punk youth. Inspired by the Damned and Sex Pistols, they formed late in 1976 as the 'United Kingdom Subversives', soon shortening their name and playing all the London punk holes through '77. Two songs, including their minimalist classic 'I Live In A Carappeared on the Farewell To The Roxy album, and after a huge selling indie single in 1978 C.I.D they signed to Gem Records via RCA world-wide. Surprising everyone, they then became one of the most consistently and visibly successful punk bands, with seven consecutive UK Top 30 hits between 1979-81, establishing themselves throughout the world with a heavy touring schedule that still continues today. The hits were: Stranglehold, Tomorrows Girls, The Zombie's She's Not There, Warhead, Teenage, Party In Paris and Keep On Running. The albums Brand New Age and Crash Course both went into the UK top ten. Led by the indefatigable Charlie Harper (now venerated as the godfather of UK punk) the band has continued and thrived, through various line-ups and record companies. Touring world-wide for 30 years, they maintain and pioneer the true spirit of punk rock, without the compromise and watering-down that affected so many of their contemporaries.
