UK Subs are back on their annual jaunt to Nottingham this May – tickets available now!
FRIDAY 12th MAY
@ The Maze, Nottingham
Inspired by the Damned at the birth of British Punk, the now equally legendary Charlie Harper formed the Subs out of his then R&B outfit The Marauders, late in 1976.
Starting out as The Subversives, the name was shortened to The Subs and then changed to U.K. Subs, with the prefix taken from the first Sex Pistols single Anarchy In The U.K.
Touring worldwide for 30 plus years, they maintain and pioneer the true spirit of punk rock, without the compromise and watering-down that has affected so many of their contemporaries. There has never been any division of fan and band with the Subs, and Charlie’s unrelenting love of his audience and music shines through. This is something that galvanized listeners of Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6music show to hoist the band high as the most respected of Punk ‘icons’, to win the 2010 Punk World Cup.
Like a vintage wine – the U.K. Subs just get better and better.
“The Reverends are unashamedly old school punk, replete with buzzsaw guitars, pounding drums and rasping vocals, with shout-along choruses and well crafted songs.”
Vive Le Rock!
“The class of 77 meet the class of 82, and everyone gobs on the freshly polished classroom floor.”
