Charlie has confirmed to T&M that he plans to record a second solo album next year. Plans are currently for the project to be an acoustic album, with the Subs mainman revealing that he is "writing loads of songs at present", although this album will most probably consist of a mix of original compositions and some covers.
All this is, of course, in addition to the Subs recording their next studio album in 2012, the release of the Urban Dogs acoustic album as well as the 'Charlie Harper's Harbour Rats' project with ex-Sub Pete Davies.
Looks like 2012 is going to be ANOTHER VINTAGE YEAR for Subs fans folks!
