Synopsis by Mark Deming
Charlie Harper and his band the UK Subs have been among the top dogs of the British punk rock scene since they released their first album in 1979, and this home video release features two shows from these street punk rebels, both shot in 1983. UK Subs: Live at the Retford Porterhouse also features footage from a gig at the Manchester Gallery, as well as a few tunes from a show by the Urban Dogs, Harper's side project featuring Knox from the Vibrators. Songs include "Violent Revolution," "Flood of Lies," "Scum of the Earth," "In the Red," "Dress Code," "Warhead," and more.
