Ian (Tanner) Tansley, the drummer with Liquid Stone, who supported the Subs recalls:


"I had to sub for Pete Davies once, so technically this makes me eligable to go onto the ex-band members list! There were two shows in one day in Sheffield, which was a bit much for Pete who was suffering with flu - he wasn't best happy when we did a sound check using his drum kit and I had put my snare on his stand!
Anyway, Pete started the set but couldn't go on so I got a call from the dressing room (having already completed our set) to join the Subs on stage - I remember very well doing Stranglehold with them - a very powerful number and it struck me that the sound mixing and lighting for the Subs was loads better than we were getting!"


Cheers to Ian for contacting T&M, he has also submitted some memorabilia from his time touring with the Subs. For example, see HERE
