RETROPOPIC 505 - CHARLIE HARPER OF THE UK SUBS TALKS: REMEMBERING THE ROXY IN '77

Chart positions

This show was 5th in the global interview chart.

Alongside great tracks from The Kinks, Eggs Over Easy, The Damned, The Jam, The Velvet Underground and of course The UK Subs, The Saint of RETROPOPIC RADIO talks with UK Subs frontman Charlie Harper about his memories of the London live music scene from the 60s up until the time of 1977

What are Charlie's memories of seeing The Kinks at The Marquee when they broke big? How does he remember Charaguaramas before it transformed into The Roxy? Enjoying The Ramones & The Damned, why didn't he embrace playing punk straightway? Where did the anger of British punk come from? What are his memories of the London punk venues of 1977? Where did the group name UK Subs come from? What are his thoughts on the violence that surrounded punk? How much does he live as a punk today? What are his hopes on a continuation of touring for 'The Subs'?

Remember RETROPOPIC RADIO is the home of great British punk!

Charlie, such a lovely bloke. A national treasure. If I’m ever mooching about the back streets of London I’ll think of him-it’s his city.
