GBH are one of the great British punk rock bands.
The hard working stalwarts of the so called second wave of British punk tour the world constantly playing to big crowds and are a massive influence on bands as diverse as Rancid and Metallica.
From Birmingham the band always deliver a powerful, direct live show and are some of the coolest people we have met in years of rock n roll. In the past few years they have been doing really well, picking up a deal with Rancid’s label and releasing their strongest material since their 1982 ‘City Baby Attacked By Rats’ release.
We asked frontman Colin for his top ten albums and he fired back the following list whilst claiming that ‘these are in no particular order and liable to change at any minute…’
1. SEX PISTOLS – ‘NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS’
