"*THE BULLET KINGS COVER U.K. SUBS TRACK ON NEW 7" SINGLE - BUY IT NOW!
The Bullet Kings, from Bolton in Lancashire, UK, have just released a new double A-sided green vinyl 7" single.
Of particular interest to all members of this Facebook U.K. Subs Fan Club will be Side AA, which is a cover version of the U.K. Subs track off the Mad Cow Fever LP, 'Saints and Sinners'.
Side A is called 'Brand New Disgrace' and both tracks are superb slices of gutsy, guitary, tuneful and catchy punk rock. The new version of 'Saints and Sinners' actually kicks off with Charlie stating "It isn't every day that the Bullet Kings do Saints and Sinners" (which was recorded in a car park in Crawley prior to a Subs gig)... and then the music kicks off in style...
"Old style Punk Rock from Up North" is how the band describe themselves, and you really should treat yourself and grab a copy of this mighty piece of Subs-related vinyl.
The 'Saints and Sinners' lyrics for this version have been re-written exclusively by Charlie Harper for the Bullet Kings, and on the two latest photos uploaded to the Fan Club, you can view the vinyl and the new re-worked Harper lyrics.
