Formed at the suggestion of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, Vic Godard and his Subway Sect have been long-term staples on the post-punk scene since 1976. They still regularly perform, albeit with an ever-changing line-up of band members.
A resurgence of interest in his work has seen him find fans with, amongst others, Marc Riley on BBC 6Music, who has booked Vic and the boys for several live radio sessions. Meanwhile 2014 saw the release of an impressive double album career retrospective ’30 Odd Years’, covering an eclectic range of material, from punk to ska to cabaret to music hall and jazz.
September 2016 saw the 40 year anniversary of the Subway Sect’s first gig at the infamous 100 Club ‘Punk Festival’ and the launch of a new Vic Godard single ‘Find Out Over Time/Dead Dreamy’ on GNU Inc.
“Whenever Godard adopted a style it became a genre and when it became a genre he did something else”— The Daily Telegraph
“We oppose all rock n roll’, avoid all these clichés”— Vic Godard
