Rocking good music

PRIVILEDGED fans were treated to a showcase of brand new material at The Green Room, WGC.

The Subways played a one-off show at the venue, road testing tracks from their new album.

Lead vocalist and guitarist Billy said to the crowd: "We've realised we have all these new songs and no idea how to play them."

The band need not have worried, they delivered a cracking performance to a very receptive crowd. The new sound is less raw but lacking none of the feisty, edginess of prevous material, nor any of The Subways' trademark energy and honesty.

The second album was produced in the US by famed musician Butch Vig who produced the Nirvana album, Nevermind.

Speaking to the WHT Billy said: "With this new album we wanted it to be 10 times better than the first. We really didn't want to make a mediocre second album."

"It's definitely more powerful, more dynamic. I think I'm really wearing my heart on my sleeve."

The Subways treated fans to the classic track With You and closed the set in true rock 'n' roll style throwing the drum kit across the stage.
