U.K. Subs - Shake Up The City


On this date in 1982, U.K. Subs released their tenth 7-inch record, an EP called Shake Up The City. It contained "Self Destruct", "Police State (Part 1)" and "War Of The Roses". None of the tracks appeared on a regular album. The London punk band, originally called U.K. Subversives, is still led by Charlie Harper and shows no sign of slowing down.
