Synopsis of UK Subs content:
This book is a phenomenal feat of research and information. Covering the obvious and the not so obvious bands from this period of punk history (and beyond), this really is recommended reading for anyone with an interest in punk music and its story.
It is mind boggling to think that the author cites the fact, in his introduction, that the original draft ran to more than twice the length of that which was eventually published! Pages 644 to 658 cover the U.K. Subs, but there are numerous references to the Subs throughout.
There is a comprehensive discography on each band covered as well, and the Subs' history, like the rest of this mighty tome, is written with a touch of humour that won't be to everyone's taste, but Time & Matter website isn't in that camp!
Our favourite quote from Ogg has been on our homepage since day one, and there is so much more to enjoy, such as Ogg's point about GEM Records should've backed the Subs' song Party In Paris as a eurovision entry, instead of bankrupting themselves pushing another artist for that show!
THIS REALLY IS ESSENTIAL READING - BUY IT NOW!
