UK Subs med res.jpg
English punk band UK Subs are one of the most revered and influential acts to come out of punk rock’s magnificent late-‘70s second wave, alongside other iconic artists such as Stiff Little Fingers and The Ruts. Formed in 1976, The Subversives (as they were originally known) centered on the unstoppable vocalist and frontman Charlie Harper and electrifying guitarist Nicky Garratt, who together formed a partnership that held firm through the group’s tumultuous early years and yielded such classics as “Stranglehold,” “Warhead,” “Tomorrow’s Girls” and “Down On The Farm,” which was covered by Guns N’ Roses on their 1993 album The Spaghetti Incident?. In later years, the core of the group would venture off in a number of side projects with Garratt and longtime Subs bassist Alvin Gibbs creating Target Generation, whose 1984 recordings are being released here for the very first time, as well as Harper’s more recent collaborations with The Damned’s Captain Sensible and The Vibrator’s Knox (under the moniker Urban Dogs). Packaged with liner notes written by Harper, Garratt, and Gibbs, and available on both CD and in a limited edition clear vinyl pressing, Friends & Relations is a compilation that no self-respecting Subs fan should be without! Look for it in stores starting May 13th.
