Another good UK Subs album to add to their huge discography and this time it seems was the turn to
getting closer a little bit to hard rock, especially in the rhythmic guitars and global sound production. The release was made in two formats, this one is the original studio album, but label "Fallout Records" made also another issue with a bonus CD, which contains a performance "Live in Croatia" recorded also in 1993 with twenty six songs. Later in 2015 there was another re-issue through record label "Let Them Eat Vinyl" in a limited edition.

"Killing time"
Year:  1988
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  New Red Archives
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  32 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:          New Wave




















For the 1988 album "killing time", UK SUBS frontman Charlie Harper brought back the original lineup of guitarist Nicky Garratt and bassist Alvin Gibbs after a five-year absence, an hiatus with no activity and apparent disparition. Garratt and Gibbs were present during the most successful albums, so it seemed only natural that a reunion album would serve to rekindle the magic of that period. Fortunately, the reunion turned better but not harder or strictly to original classic punk rock, but to new musical styles more alternative rock oriented, even perhaps some "new wave" songs. All these years I know UK SUBS I have not ever seen nor listened to this "killing time", which is sure the most forgotten and unknown UK SUBS album. The band especially hits a lot with "Nico," an ill-conceived tribute to the Velvet Underground chanteuse that is very well done. "killing time" is next to here below "flood of flies" the most different and also original UK SUBS albums, which perhaps, are not expected for those who love the classic 1977 punk rock but which are more than satisfactory for those who, simply, like to listen to music... and enjoy it. In add, to mention the band recorded again with the political punk rock label "Red New Archives" from San Francisco.

"Flood of flies"
Year:  1983
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Fallout
Format:  LP , CD
Tracks:  12
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:         Post Punk






























No no, I am not wrong at all... ha ha! this is UK SUBS british punk rock band since 1977 yes. And the true is the band has recorded until 2015 thirthy seven full lenght official albums, all of them more or less into the simple description of "punk rock". With an only one exception in 1983 with the album "Flood of flies" and months later the EP "Magic". Different of the rest, this UK SUBS album has more to do with Joy Division, Siouxsie & The Banshees or PiL than the typical punk rock. So, here we can to listen to some kind of industrial and sometimes electronic drums and percusions, reverb effects, echoes and some kind of dark, sinister of misteryous ambient. Sincerely I never had listened to this album until now, but the true is this is not a bad disk at all. If you like post-punk, deathrock or cold wave, it's recommended to listen to mininum a few times this work.

"Endangered species"
Year:  1982
Country:  UK
City:  London
Label:  Warner Music
Format:  CD
Tracks:  15
Tracks:  45 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk  Rock



























This is the most succesful UK Subs album and probably one of the best but the best works of the band. If its debut "Another kind of blues" (1979) was a good punk rock album, this fourth "Endangered species" is clearly excellent. The band took few new wave influences, with some kind of electronic drums, occasionally keyboards and certain atmospheres closer to post-punk. Here we can to find songs became in a total classics such as: "Down of the farm", "Police state", "New barbarians" or "Endangered species" to mention just a few. High recommended
