If you buy it today your in luck, as is so common now the re-release has the original album plus their singles.
It's strange how the 'UK. Subs' used to be one of my favourite punk bands, but playing this now, it hasn't aged as well as some of the other songs from the late 70's. Although I must admit 'C.I.D' and 'B1C' were never my favourite songs. 'Live in a car' was always a crowd pleaser and was of my personal fave's. But you tell me what you think.
'Live in a car' is an excellent example of why you shouldn't have technology in the lyrics. For many young people today they would struggle to understand what the hell 'Charlie Harper' was singing about:
"Well I live in a car
well I live in a car
Well I ain't got no television set or stereo
Don't try to call me on the telephone
Coz I won't be home
I Live in a car"
Well what's wrong with the mobile, and the ipod?
Little more etching trivia, the a-side has the classic 'A Porky Prime Cut' and the b-side has 'This Side Up the side below'. Who knows?
Band: UK. Subs
Label: City Records
2. Live In A Car
If you like then go out and buy this, it has some excellent tracks on, for me the best tracks are 'Lady Esquire' and 'Tomorrows Girl':
