UK Subs, the punk legends on a hundred thousand leather jackets, continue their constant touring regime playing to new generations of the nation's disaffected punk youth (who were perhaps SUBverted aged 5, watching Charlie and co on Top of the Pops!) Inspired by The Damned and The Sex Pistols, they formed late in 1976 as the 'United Kingdom Subversives', soon after shortening their name and playing all the London punk holes through '77. Two songs, including their minimalist classic, 'I Live in A Car', appeared on the 'Farewell To The Roxy' album and after a huge selling indie single in 1978 'C.I.D.', they signed to Gem Records via RCA world-wide. One of the most influential punk rock bands of all time, championed by the likes of Henry Rollins, Minor Threat, The Fastbacks, Hanoi Rocks, Guns &Roses, and even Dennis Rodman. This band has sold over a million records without any substantial radio airplay. The original songwriting team 1977-1983 played over a thousand shows across the world opening on tour for the Ramones and the Police and headlining to over 20,000 people on their last show. With seven appearances on England's prestigious "Top Of The Pops", four top 30 singles (UK national charts) and four top 30 albums including an album which entered the charts in its first week at number eight, this band has the most dedicated following of any punk band. We are delighted to bring this seminal Punk band to play their first ever show in Hong Kong at the intimate MOM livehouse as part of the Spirit of '77 live series.
