The Darling Buds top 10 favourite albums : number 7 : U.K. Subs – “Another Kind of Blues”.
Not just a dumb punk thrash-athon, the early Subs were a tight, well drilled unit with one foot rooted in the tough r’n’b of the Feelgoods. In Nicky Garrett they had a guitarist who bucked the trend and mixed the Ramones/Pistols thrash with real finesse and tension. Massively underrated and influential on the hardcore and post-core scene, this was the band that made Chris pick up a guitar. Chris and Matt’s old band supported them a few times pre-buds and Charlie turned up at an early Buds gig causing Chris great excitement!
