It’s not every day one has the chance to see a punk legend live. Vic Godard is one such and is playing this Friday at the Bang Bang Club in Berlin.
[audio:Vic Godard & The Subway Sect – Back In The Void Again.mp3]Performing on stage with a band that includes members of Felt and the Sex Pistols, this show is not to be missed for anyone interested in the true meaning of punk.
In 1976, Godard formed Subway Sect with three other fans of the Sex Pistols at the suggestion of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, who wanted another band for the line-up of the 100 Club Punk Festival. Despite their inexperience, Subway Sect made a successful debut at the festival.
They appeared with The Clash on the White Riot Tour in 1977 and released their debut single, “Nobody’s Scared”/ “Don’t Split It”, in March 1978.

Godard re-formed Subway Sect in 1980 with new musicians and released the album What’s The Matter Boy? Following a summer tour with Buzzcocks, Subway Sect disbanded again. In the mid-1980s, Godard retired from music and became a postman.
