With 2016 marking the U.K. Subs’ 40th anniversary; this legendary punk band continues to represent the true spirit of punk rock. Inspired by the Damned at the birth of British Punk, the now equally legendary Charlie Harper formed the Subs out of his then R&B outfit The Marauders, late in 1976.

King Kurt

The Big Blue Shed presents King Kurt + Snakerattlers

Way back when, during the 'Rise of the Machine' some time in the spring of 1981, Rockin' Kurt and his Saur Krauts started pounding the well-rotten boards of the London Rock'n'Roll clubs and pubs.

Initially the line up consisted of Jeff Harvey -- vocals, (Handsome) John Reddington -- guitar, Alan (Junior, later aka Maggot) Power -- saxamaphone, Robert (Boppin' Bert) Boustead -- bass, Mark (Rory) Lyons -- drums, and after seeing their second show, Paul (Thwack) Laventhol joined on geeter in time for the third gig in July of '81.

During the autumn of that year, Rockin' Kurt & His SK's took a trip up to Bangor, North Wales, where Jeff had some chums who'd set up two shows. They were well attended, at least 5 people came to both shows! After spending our hard-earned cash (20 pounds for both nights I seem to recall, and no, not each, altogether!), we drove back through the Welsh hills to London. On our way we decided to do a show for the passing tourists in their lovely warm coaches while we stood on a big rock. From that day on we dropped the 'Roc' from Rockin' Kurt and his Saur Krauts (was too long and hard to say it pissed!) and became known simply as King Kurt.

'Til spring of '82 King Kurt remained the same, doing gigs around local London, the Fridge, Clarendon, the Pits, Old Queens Head etc, dressing up in silly clothes, playing to packed houses of at least three people, giving out prizes of sauseges and sauerkraut to anyone who dared dance. Rory had been busy getting King Kurt regular shows at the 101 Club in Clapham where he worked, and by this time the momentum of virual popularity was growing. Alas Jeff was getting itchy feet and wanted to leave the music bigtime and go to art school in Birmingham. King Kurt needed a replacement singer, and needed one fast! Along came The Smeg. Things looked good. King Kurt could say goodbye to Jeff and continue on the crazy lonesome train ride that was upon them.

Snakerattlers comprise married couple Dan Oliver Gott and Naomi Gott. It's a hellbound voyage of deathpunk, rockabilly, country, and traditional greaser rock and roll. Stood up, shook up, dynamic drumming. Reverb-drenched double-amped guitar. Aggressive and sweetly mournful vocals. A screaming, wailing brand new take on the rockabilly genre
