U.K. SUBS + THE REVERENDS
THE VICTORIA INN
12 MIDLAND PLACE
The U.K. Subs were part of the original punk movement in England that formed in 1976, with the initial name of the Subversives. The band’s founder, Charlie Harper selected guitarist Nicky Garratt,bassist Paul Slack, and various drummers (eventually Pete Davis became fairly stable) under the initial name “U.K. Subversives”. The London based band’s early line-up changed frequently.
Their style combined the energy of punk and the rock and roll edge of the then thriving pub rock scene. The band had some hit singles such as “Stranglehold”, “Warhead”, “Teenage”, and “Tomorrow’s Girls”, with several of their songs managing to enter the United Kingdom’s Top Forty.
Successive U.K. Subs album titles start with consecutive letters of the alphabet, and according to an interview with TxPunk.net, the band will start the process over after reaching the letter “Z”. The U.K. Subs song “Down on the Farm” was covered by Guns N’ Roses on their 1993 covers album “The Spaghetti Incident?”. The U.K. Subs joined the bill for the 2006 Fiend Fest. The band have toured with The Misfits, The Adicts, Osaka Popstar, Agent Orange, and The Ramones. The U.K. Subs song “Warhead” is played in the movie, This Is England.
