The UK Subs are one of the few bands that have the respect of EVERYONE on the punk scene. Formed in 1976, ever-present in the band has been vocalist Charlie Harper. Now venerated as the godfather of UK punk, Harper emerged from Britain's R&B scene. They continue to thrive, with 2010 marking the fifth decade in ...which the band had continually graced the scene. 2013 saw the release of their critically acclaimed ‘XXIV’ double album and they are widely recognised as one of the most consistent and visibly successful punk bands ever - maintaining and pioneering the true spirit of punk rock. With a powerful line up in place since 2005 (Jet – guitar / Alvin Gibbs - bass / Jamie Oliver – drums), the UK Subs continue to entertain and enthuse.
Founded in 1978 in Derby, England, Anti-Pasti comprised of Martin Roper on vocals, Dugi Bell on guitar and with the addition of Stu Winfield on bass and Stan Smith on drums, released their debut EP, "Four Sore Points", featuring the all time punk rock classic "No Government", on their own Dose record label. They played many gigs in and around Derby and rapidly built up a large following.
