The U.K. Subs Time & Matter website is pleased to announce the launch of our 'not for profit company' Time & Matter Recordings. T&M exists purely to put out previously un-released or no longer available U.K. Subs material on CD and DVD (and possibly other formats) with 100% of the profits going to a charity or individual personally chosen by Charlie Harper, further details of which can be found on the website.
Our first release is a CD re-issue of the legendary 1980 bootleg “Dance & Travel In The Robot Age”, available for just £5-00 (plus postage).
Originally released in 1980 by Black & White Recs (from the Isle of White in the UK), the recording was made by the late Tracy Crazy, from the Italian punk band S.I.B, who also took the photographs used on the cover. The gig where the recording was made, at the Palalido in Milan, Italy was part of a seven date European tour that the Subs played with the Ramones. Now, thirty years later, this historic recording is finally getting a proper CD release. Whilst not recorded with the most sophisticated equipment, and reproduced for this release from an original vinyl copy, "Dance & Travel" captures the Subs at the height of their powers with a blistering set of what would become the classics that are the mainstay of their live performances to this day.
Time & Matter Recordings now gives you the opportunity to own this essential U.K. Subs bootleg in digital format.
This attractively produced CD features exclusive liner notes by Paul Slack, a 4 page booklet with artwork from the original bootleg release and exclusive Black & White band member profile photographs originally used on the back cover of the Warhead 7" single, seen here in their original uncropped, untreated form.
Limited edition of 300 hand numbered copies.
Recorded: 16 February 1980
Track listing: You Can't Take It Anymore / Rat Race / I Couldn't Be You / I Live In A Car /
Tomorrows Girls / Telephone Numbers / Kicks / Warhead / Public Servant / C.I.D. / Rockers / Organised Crime / Brand New Age / Killer / Dirty Girls / Stranglehold / Emotional Blackmail //
Band Line Up:
Charlie Harper - vocals / Nicky Garratt - guitar / Paul Slack - bass / Pete Davies - drums
Grab yourself a real bargain, and it's for charity as well…
Coming soon – “Soft Lights & Loud Guitars” - a UK Subs DVD from their gig in Southampton, UK, December 2009, with many extras and additional features…

Hey Nuzz,

Here is a very special share for you, A new amigo of mine named Marky hooked me up with these. THE LOVE PIRATES this was SAMI YAFFA'S band in the early 90's before Demoliton 23 and Mad Juana, very fucking good rocking stuff here. Think Johnny thunders joins hanoi and you get the idea. Gas Wild is the singer.



if you need the set list for the 2nd share let me know.

It's a **** thing said...

Just ordered it and posted the info on a couple of forums. Thanks for the heads up.

First up... Humble apologies for not responding sooner Sam. Small world. Say hallo to Simon from us. It was fun working with him at that car place, not the most taxing of jobs, It was so simple a trained monkey could have done it. Glad you're enjoying the blog, got a few probs reuploading the Scum stuff, had disc crash, which wipped some stuff, can't find discs I backed it up on, but I'm looking, so bare with us, I've got some other Scum tapes that I'm waiting to covert to mp3 as well. All the best, and give Si a big kiss from me. Cheers for the sounds Nekro, and you can't beat a bit of UK Subs can yer?
