Previously Unreleased Tracks On New U.K. Subs Compilation
U.S record label Cleopatra are scheduled to release a new U.K. Subs compilation in the next few weeks entitled 'Friends and Relations'.
Featuring the three tracks from the Subs' 2011 single 'Product Supply', along with the four tracks that make up the Charlie Harper & Captain Sensible E.P. 'Too Much Reality', as well as both sides of the Urban Dogs 'Rebellion Song' single; all of which were released by T&M, this essential compilation also boasts two tracks from the Noise Annoys 2005 re-issue of 'A.W.O.L' as well as those all important unreleased five tracks by Target Generation.
Target Generation were formed by Nicky Garratt, Alvin Gibbs and Kim Wylie when the line-up of the Subs they played in imploded after the band's tour of Poland in 1983. They were joined by Ken Scott and Mel Wesson. Kim Wylie left and was replaced by Ken Scott's brother, Andy, both formerly of Wasted Youth. This line-up recorded a five track demo for EMI but ultimately fell apart shortly after with these tracks never being released, until now!
'Friends and Relations' features liner notes by Charlie Harper, Nicky Garratt and Alvin Gibbs in its 6 page colour foldout booklet, comprises sixteen tracks and has a catalogue number of CLO 0186.
The CD and LP will be available in North America only through Cleopatra and via the Time & Matter
webstore for the Rest of the World.
T&M will be selling the CD at £10.00 plus postage, with the vinyl price yet to be set.
