Line Up

Vocals: Charlie Harper
Guitar: Nicky Garratt
Bass: Paul Slack
Drum (sic): Pete Davies


Reissue of the band's third album, excluding the 'For Export Only' bonus 12" EP, Demon reissued the first four albums together, in a gatefold sleeve with a download code.

Recorded at The Rainbow theatre in London on the 30th May 1980, the penultimate gig of the Brand New Age tour and only five days before this line-up broke up. It has been said that Charlie was so drunk during the gig that some of the vocals had to be re-recorded (Source: Paul Mileman, Official UK Subs website). Mixed at Matrix Studios by Nicky Garratt and Nick Bedford, the audience sound track was taken from a Lyceum gig (Possibly the For Export Only show) as the sound wasn't good enough due the way the mikes were hung.

To give some depth, a little Gong from a show in Paris was also added, though it is not known if this means a gong as it is printed with a capital letter, in the Captain Oi cd liner notes, and may mean the sixties psychedelic band?
