Subway Sect - Part 2; Live 1977/1978

The first show came to me without a location or date so not really sure where it was recorded. The Newcastle show features the second line up of the band and a couple new songs. Both shows are audience recordings and the sound quality is raw but still a good listen.

01. Why Don't You Shoot Me
02. Chain Smoking
03. Ambition
04. I Changed My Mind (On The Telephone)

07. Imbalance
08. Enclave
09. Rock 'n' Roll Even

  1. One of my favourite bands... I didn't get to see them until '78, so I can't get enough boots from this period, no matter how rough sounding... Vic Godard can do little wrong in my eyes (or indeed ears). Thanks a lot for these.

  2. Styreneboy, glad you got to see subway Sect. I'd love to have seen them. I wish vic Godard would play some shows in US so I could see him. I like most everything he's done over the years.

  3. Yo these are nice sets. Thanks for uploading! Do you have any Devo by any chance?
