The Subways

Back in 2005, with an average age of just 17, Billy, Charlotte and Josh crashed onto the international music scene with their, now cult, debut album ‘Young For Eternity’ and rock-club floor filler ‘Rock & Roll Queen’. NME proclaiming them “The sexiest thing to sweep rock n roll off it’s feet in years!”. Their sophomore album, ‘All Or Nothing’ (2008), was recorded in LA with Nirvana/ Smashing Pumpkins producer Butch Vig and is “Buoyed with emotional heft and supernova guitar riffs, wired around a maturing song craft, The recent split of singer guitarist Billy Lunn and bassist Charlotte Cooper has made for some inspirational writing” (MOJO). The tracks written around the time Billy was battling to save his voice by undergoing surgery to remove nodules from his vocal chords. ‘Money And Celebrity’ followed in 2011 with the band working with Blur/Smiths producer Stephen Street on this insanely catchy pop-rock record full of “brilliantly anarchic punk-pop vignettes; each being a big musical finger that sticks it to financial greed, the mediocre mainstream and the fame fetishists” (ROCKSOUND) such as lead single ‘We Don’t Need Money To Have A Good Time’.
