U.K. Subs play the Lyceum in London, England



Line up:
Charlie Harper - vocals
Nicky Garratt - guitar
Paul Slack - bass

Pete Davies - drums



The Subs were filmed playing live at the Lyceum, and the footage from this gig was subsequently featured in a documentary about the band called ‘Punk Can Take It’.
Julien Temple wrote and directed Punk Can Take It, and it eventually gained a long awaited commercial release in 2003.
The free 12" ‘For Export Only’, that came with initial copies of Crash Course was also recorded at The Lyceum theatre on this particular date.
