More information about Vic Godard & Subway Sect tickets
In 1976, Vic Godard formed Subway Sect with three other fans of theSex Pistols at the suggestion of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, who wanted another band for the line-up of the 100 Club Punk Festival. Despite their inexperience, Subway Sect made a successful debut at the festival and were taken on by Clash manager Bernie Rhodes. They appeared with The Clash on the White Riot Tour in 1977 and released their debut single, “Nobody’s Scared”/”Don’t Split It”, in March 1978.While recording their debut album at Gooseberry Studios, Rhodes suddenly fired the entire band except for Godard. Only one track from the album’s recording sessions, “Ambition”, was released by Rough Trade Records; the single was a major hit on the alternative charts. Godard re-formed Subway Sect in 1980 with new musicians and signed to MCA Records sublabel Oddball, releasing the album What’s The Matter Boy?. Following a summer tour with Buzzcocks, Subway Sect disbanded again. In the mid-1980s, Godard retired from music and became a postman. After a return to making records in the 90′s Vic released the album ‘Sansend’ in 2002 under the Subway Sect name and reactivated the band live with original members including Paul Myers and Paul Cook from The Sex Pistols.
