The only Subs single to be released on the French label Combat Rock, it featured three brand new songs plus a cover of Thunderclap Newman's 1969 number one song "Something in the air". Recorded by legendry producer Dave Goodman who had also produced the Motivator 12" single.

The only single with ex-Vice Squad drummer Pumpy, Reclaim the Streets would re-appear as the b-side to the next single "Drunken Sailor".

Black vinyl only with an insert featuring lyrics and information on other Combat Rock releases.

Caps from Combat Rock contacted the site with the following;

"The exact recording dates are: Wednesday the 14th and Thursday the 15 of June
The vinyl version was a limited edition of 1000 copies + 5 test pressings - I've seen it was written that it came out in december but I would say October / November;
The MCD version came out at the same time at 1000 copies first pressing and 300 more copies were repressed in March 2001...
During the recording session Charlie told me that he would like some "french speaking language" in the chorus so , after reading Sir Harper's lyrics, I wrote quicly "Allez descendez tous dans la rue" ... which means ; "All of you go down the street and get back what has been taken away from you"... and with Gilles (Charge 69 singer at the time)   we sang that in Mandala studio ... We also did the backing vocals on "Metro" ...What memories..."

Thanks for that Caps.
