The Subways

A friend asked if I had any Subways, I knew I had enjoyed "Young For Eternity" when it came out,
really couldn't remember much else about them......after checking that is because "Young For Eternity" is the extent of my knowledge.....so, I returned to said freind and cited my relative lack of knowledge, and lucky me, he has a mountain of their stuff that he loaned to me for use on the blog....lotsa singles/EP's, stuff, you'll see soon, I have been listnening to some of it, and some of it is in fact quite good.

The Subways were guitarist/singer Billy Lunn/bassist/vocalist Charlotte Cooper, and drummer Josh Morgan....."Young For Eternity" was a fine album, an excellent piece of British alt/post-grunge, loaded with shoulda-been hits ("Holiday" is my fave but there are a LOT of fine tracks here.)

So, after a couple years they presented us with "All Or Nothing", which, amazingly, I don't think I've ever heard a note of until this week. I missed out the first time it's a good one as well....these guys (and gal) had quite a knack for pop-rock gems, "Shake! Shake" and "Strawberry Blonde" stand out, but this is a good, solid album that I simply missed out on.......

So, naturally, I ALSO missed on "Money and Celebrity" (2010) to which I was also indoctrinated this week......really, while I think it lacks the energy of the earlier stuff, there is still quality here ("It's a Party", "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".........really, three albums, all of which are worth owning.

My friend also has a mountain of other stuff, singles, and EP's and other stuff which we'll try to sort out below.....the band had enough materil, easilly, for another good album......so, sorry Subways, I missed out on some good stuff, but a belated thanks to you!
