You never know what’s going to be in the post. Today we received this time capsule courtesy of Wojtek aka Bertie from Białystok Poland. Bertie recently bought a copy of Culture Shock’s Onwards And Upwards LP on Discogs, and inside he found this “reaction sheet”. Back in the dark ages of 1988, before there were things like CDs and the internet, we used to send out promos of vinyl LPs. Inside we’d include what we called a “reaction sheet”, for the journalists and DJs to fill in and send back to us (in the post! as a letter!). This one appears to have been created by hand by Kent Jolly who used to work here (I was obviously away and Kent couldn’t figure out how to use the typewriter, ha ha).
Bertie obviously has a good sense of humour and was impressed enough by the ancient technology that he found inside his copy of the album to fill in the reaction sheet and send it back to us. Thank you Bertie, for the window to the past!
Subhumans are back once again to show us all what punk is really about this summer with plans to rain anarchy not only in the UK, but Europe as well. With just a few UK dates left and one in Prague there’s still time to catch them. And what with the Citizen Fish dates coming up in November….my my how those boyos are spoiling us!
Amongst their appearances, they’ll also be playing at Rebellion Festival so you can overdose on all kinds of rambunctious punk antics.
A year on from 2011’s tour, the excellent Citizen Fish have confirmed they’ll be back bombing around the UK once again this autumn. This time supporting The Levellers on a total of 14 dates you’ll be sure to be able to catch these punks somewhere near you!
Hailing from Bath and featuring Subhumans alumni and current members alike, the ska/punk team boast somewhat of a pedigree. It’s only too right that they’ve teamed up with the Levellers for this next venture around the UK!
If you can’t wait that long, Citizen Fish will be playing a few UK dates, (including the King amongst independent punk festivals- Rebellion), as a welcome prelude to their November Tour.
Soon after storming Milton Keynes with a double show at The Ritz, Subhumans have yet another extensive list of UK gig dates lined up to thaw you out of winter. From Brighton to Newcastle, they’ll be weathering the country’s roads to bring you their infectious wail of punk; a way to experience live the volatile tracks we know and love.
And seeing as time flies (but aeroplanes crash), get your tickets now!
