MAJOR U.K. SUBS ANNOUNCEMENT!!
New Guitarist joins the band...
"During the course of the last couple of weeks there's been a lot of speculation as to who will be joining UK Subs as the new guitarist.
In selecting a shortlist of potential candidates we were looking for someone with a firm grasp of the fundamentals, a good sound knowledge of the UK Subs and punk rock in general, experience of being on the road, a burning passion for music and the ability to adapt to a variety of situations. In addition to these core elements we also wanted a real, honest person who would fit in with the ethos of the band as it has been known for many years.
Please join us in welcoming to the Subs camp, Mr. Steve Straughan. In recent times, Steve has been the axeman for our fellow old school veterans the Angelic Upstarts, as well as his own project the Hi-Fi Spitfires, who have steadily been building up quite a following on the continent.
Although the introduction of any new band member is a tentative process and will inevitably be subject to review, we are confident that Steve has fulfilled all of the aforementioned criteria, and is therefore the right man for the job. We hope that with Steve's expertise and your cherished support we can continue and thrive through this next phase of the UK Subs.
Charlie, Alvin and Jamie"
