Subway Sect’s Vic Godard – My Compilation

Subway Sect’s Vic Godard – My Compilation

Vic godard@SubwaySect2010 Subway Sect debuted at the 100 Club Punk Festival on Monday 20th September 1976. From that day the band were set to polarise the first wave of Punk. Their first  single, ‘Ambition’ topped the indie charts for nine weeks, selling 2000,000 copies per week, so when I say polarised think 80 / 20, at worst.

Between rehearsals for the new album, ‘We Come As Aliens’, Vic Godard chose the following tracks as his ideal compilation.

Debussy – ‘Arabesque’
Charles Aznavour – ‘Paris au mois d’aout’
Charles Aznavour – ‘Et Pourtant’
Charlie Parker – ‘Embraceable You’
King Pleasure – ‘Moody’s Mood for Love’
Tony Clarke – ‘The Entertainer’
Jesse James – ‘Love is Alright’
Junior Walker and the All Stars – ‘What Does it Take’
Jay and the Techniques –‘Apples, Peaches and Pumpkin Pie’
Stevie Wonder – ‘Never Had a Dream Come True’
Trinity – ‘No.1 Entertainer’
Television – ‘Little Johnny Jewel’
New York Dolls – ‘Subway Train’
Wrecks’n’effect – ‘Rumpshake’
Shaka Demus and Pliers = ‘Gal Wine’
Dr Dre and Snoop Doggy Dog – ‘Nuthin’ but a G Thang’
EPMD – ‘Please Listen to My Demo’
Pajabi MC – ‘Mundian Te Bach Ke’~
Tony Bennett – ‘Watch What Happens’
Craig Mack – ‘Flava in ya Ear’

The new Subway Sect album ‘We Come As Aliens’ is now available through Overground Records in the UK. ‘WE Come As Aliens’ features Mark Braby Bass / Acoustic Guitar (The Orchestra Pit) Kevin Younger Guitar / Piano / Organ (Armitage Shanks) Gary Ainge Drums / Percussion (Prev.Felt/Go kart Mozart) with special guest Paul Cook Drums / Percussion (Man Raze)there is also guest backing vocals supplied by  Simon Rivers (Bitter Springs
Vic Godard continues “We would not have the ‘Best Album’ that we set out to make were it not for Jon Clayton of One Cat Studios, who not only recorded, mixed and helped produce ‘We Come as Aliens’ but also played percussion and keyboard on a few tracks. The songs are a cross section of material we have been working on at Survival Studios over the last two years, in between rehearsing for gigs. Musical influences come thick and fast- Rotten and Thunders, Chuck and Bo, Ray Charles and Mose Allison, while lyrically this must be the best Subway Sect collection yet.”
Also due for release on gnu inc records is Vic Godard 1990’s ‘Sectioned and the Blackpool EP.
