New Single from Vic Godard & Subway Sect
Vic Godard is a veteran. He formed Subway Sect in '76 and their debut was released in '78. They toured with The Clash, and with Altered Images as their sound morphed into a more pop approach. Meanwhile, band members came and went. Vic retired from music from about the mid '80s until '92. Since then, he has produced a couple of albums. With the encouragement and assistance of Edwyn Collins, a pop star who understands survival better than just about anyone, Vic and his current version of Subway Sect has released a new single on Collins' Analogue Enhanced Digital label for Record Store Day 2013. Consisting of of two tracks, "Caught in Midstream" and "You Bring Out the Demon In Me" reveal that Vic Godard & Subway Sect is no nostalgia act. The pop sensibilities and songwriting still are masterful. Quite simply, this is great music.
