U.K. Subs play The Pop Club, York, England

Line up:
Charlie Harper – vocals
Nicky Garratt – guitar
Paul Slack – bass
Pete Davies – drums

Chris Forth got in touch about this gig and recalls seing the band on this date and then in January 79:

"I was there both nights, the first I recall was a very last minute booking. The Pop Club operated on a Wednesday night and The Lurkers were due to play Dec 6. They pulled out (TOTP booking?) and you came up at short notice on the Monday 4th.

At the time, I was gutted The Lurkers pulled out as they were bigger than The Subs, but as it was the only venue in York , I went along every week. For your first visit, it was a sparsely attended gig. You did your full it seemed like in just 20 minutes, but you came back and repeated it in full as an encore, not once, but twice. By the end of the night, guitar and bass players were topless playing on top of their amp stacks and most of the audience were on the stage. Great night. You came back 6 weeks later, the place was sold out."

Thanks Chris!
