U.K. SUBS "The Hidden History" NOISE 014
U.K. Subs are living legends of the UK punk scene. One of a few bands that have been active since 1977.A long way back, when most of the first wave punk bands had called it a day or drifted away in a different music direction, UK Subs were still gigging a lot proving there were young bands with something to say.Those days, all of the sudden new hardcore punk generation was born with the likes of Discharge, GBH, the Exploited. Those were glory days for UK Subs too. All their early albums: Another Kind of Blues, Brand New Age, Crash Course, Diminished Responsibility or Endangered Species have become punk rock classics. UK Subs “The Hidden History” is a collection of tracks compiled by Nicky Garratt who has composed most of UK Subs songs. All tracks gathered on this tape have been recorded by the original line-up which consists of Charlie Harper, Nicky Garratt and Alvin Gibbs. The same line-up that played Polish gigs in 1983. Krzysztof Lach  

A copy of the original text in Polish is included as an insert with the cassette.
