Vic Godard & Subway Sect return to the Continental pub on Friday, March 28.

They were there at the beginning of the 100 Club punk scene in 1976 and debuted alongside their contemporaries The Clash and Sex Pistols.

With Rob Symmons on guitar, Paul Myers on Bass and Paul Packham on drums, a sense of melody set them apart from the rest of the new punk acts that joined the conveyor belt that year.

By the time their first album ‘What’s The Matter Boy?’ was released, the line up had changed five times.

In the 1980s Vic got together with musicians whose talents allowed him to experiment with Jazz, Swing and Motown beats. Beginning with the ‘Songs for Sale’ LP, then recording ‘Trouble’ with Working Week and Pete Thomas’s Jumping Jive.
