As part of the original punk rock movement in England during the mid-’70s, the U.K. Subs scored several hit singles in their homeland, switching between politically charged material and party-hearty rockers. Led by singer Charlie Harper, the U.K. Subs formed in November of 1976, after Harper discovered the Damned. The group enjoyed success back home straight off the bat, as they had several hit singles (“Stranglehold,” “Tomorrow’s Girls”). GREATEST HITS is not only a worthy anthology for fans, who will be pleased that many difficult-to-find tracks are compiled in one place, but will also be the perfect intro to newcomers to one of the best, most underrated bands in punk history.
