2017 will be the UK Subs’ 40th anniversary as they remain one of the most respected and revered bands on the punk scene. Emerging as a high-speed R&B band, the Subs formed in 1977, with ever-present vocalist Charlie Harper, now 72 years young, rightly venerated as the godfather of UK punk. 2010 marked the fifth decade in which the band had continually graced stages worldwide, as 2016 saw them release their brilliant, critically acclaimed final album ‘Ziezo’; completing their quest to release each album alphabetically. Widely recognised as one of the most consistent and successful touring punk bands ever, they maintain the true spirit of punk rock. With a powerful line up in place (Steve Straughan – guitar / Alvin Gibbs – bass / Jamie Oliver – drums), they continue to thrill, entertain and enthuse wherever they play.
