Vic Godard & Subway Sect - What's the Matter Boy?

Still in the process of learning to play their instruments, Subway Sect debuted at the 100 Club Punk Festival on September 20th, 1976. Other bands on the bill included the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and the Buzzcocks. How's that for a lineup?

In 1978 while recording what was intended to be their debut album, the band's manager sacked everyone with the exception of songwriter Vic Godard. Working with unpaid musician friends, Godard eventually released What's the Matter Boy? in 1980. The songs on What's the Matter Boy? bear little resemblence to the snotty punk played by the other bands at the 100 Club Festival. Instead, Godard's songs have a romantic, world weary feel that blends French pop, Velvet Underground rave-ups, Northern Soul stompers, and Sinatra's swing.
