The U.K Subs are unique amongst the original wave of punk bands that emerged circa 1976/77 in that they have continued to gig every year ever since, clocking up thousands of shows. They maintain and pioneer the true spirit of punk rock, without the compromise and watering-down that has affected so many of their contemporaries.

Led by the now legendary Charlie Harper, this incredible front man continues to amaze with his indefatigable lust for life, music and the live circuit. Now 67 years young, Charlie is the sole reason the Subs have yet to split up, leading a band that has continued to thrive, through various line-ups.

With the band continuing to blaze their unique trail all over the world into their fifth decade, 2011 saw the band release their critically acclaimed ‘W’ album, WORK IN PROGRESS, as they near their quest to be the first band to release their official albums alphabetically A to Z.

The highlights from the bands history are too numerous to list in full here, but they are archived on uksubstimeandmatter.net — suffice to say their early success of seven consecutive UK Top 40 hits between 1979-81 was testament to their popularity amongst the punk scene then, and with there never having been any division of fan and band, their continued popularity ensured listeners of Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6music show voted them ‘Punk World Cup winners 2010’
