Subhumans (GBR)

website, wiki, facebook, bandcamp
Anarcho-punk-rockers Subhumans (the one from the U.K.) started out in 1980, and a few years later toured The Netherlands several times with the help of Paperclip Agency. One of the cannot-do-without-albums of that time is the band’s “From the Cradle to the Grave” which is a classic in the genre.
Later Dick, Bruce, Phil and Trotsky put Subhumans on hold for a while, until they kick-started the band again in 1998. They have toured the world frequently after that, and have spread their anarcho-social message at the same time, of course. And still with an incredible amount of energy.
Current album ‘Internal Riot’ (Bluurg Records-import)
