Mark Leighton recalls this gig:

I travelled to Leeds by car along with Andy and Tony, fellow Subs fans from Hull. I recall it being quite a tricky job to find Josephs Well, made a little worse by having to navigate the fabulous one way system in Leeds.

Anyway, having located the venue, there was a real air of expectation around the place. I remember it being a really well attended show with fans young and old making up the numbers.

Although I’ve seen the Subs in various forms, it’s the first time I’d seen the re-united line-up since, probably, back in 1979 at Scarborough - so, it was magnificent to have them band back together once again.

We really enjoyed the show with all the old favourites being played.
Apart from the fine playing, they all appeared to be having a great time which was fantastic to see.

What has always appealed to me about the Subs is the friendliness of the band - always prepared to mingle with the fans and stop to have a chat, and tonight was no exception. Of course, this is particularly true of Charlie who really is a top man.

To finish off the night, I bought my daughter a U.K. Subs t-shirt and Andy and Tony both bought AKOB posters which were duly signed by the band. Great night!
