Formed in 1976, as the UK Subversives, in London, United Kingdom the original line up consisted of Harper, Nicky Garrett (guitar), Pete Davies (drums) and Paul Slack (bass), although the line-up of the band changed frequently. Their style combined the energy of punk and the rock and roll edge of the then thriving pub rock scene.
Early success was found with singles such as “Warhead”, “I Live in a Car”, and “Tomorrow’s Girls”, with several of their songs managing to enter the United Kingdom’s Top Forty. Their biggest selling album came with 1980’s Crash Course.
With the arrival of new bassist Alvin Gibbs and drummer Steve Roberts in the early 1980s, the songs took on a heavier sound, faster, better quality. But always the punk views. The band has continued to perform, being one of the last surviving bands of Britain’s punk era. They have toured constantly over the years.
