U.K. SUBS To Cover QOTSA And Other Faves

Throughout their 40-odd-years’ career, U.K. SUBS always found a way to surprise their listener and never be boring. If there’s been anything predictable about this band, it was high-octane punk performance and alphabet-running record titles. Yet, with “Z” already in the past, the veterans’ creativity should find a new outlet, and while 2016’s "Friends & Relatives" delved into the ensemble’s family tree, “Subversions” which will be released on June 22nd, is a covers album. Among the pieces given the SUBS overhaul – as the title suggests – are not only such obvious choices as “1969” and “Kick Out The Jams” but also unexpected cuts like pieces from QOTSA’s repertoire or from the group’s colleagues SLAUGHTER AND THE DOGS’ cache of songs. So yes, surprises are still abound.
