Album Notes
Though there is nothing groundbreaking or especially distinctive in the brand of punk played by the Subhumans, the band is certainly not short on energy. Like the U.K. Subs, the Subhumans take the standard guitar chords and snotty, life-sucks vocals and fashion them into sneering diatribes delivered at top velocity, even if the Subhumans aren't quite as distinctive as the Subs at their best. EP-LP compiles the first four 7" EPs released by the band between 1981 and 1983, and as is often the case with first releases, the band sounds hungry and full of energy. While the band isn't exactly breaking new ground lyrically -- these are all society-sucks, the-world-hates-me songs -- and the music is somewhat standard-issue punk, without any complexities, the Subhumans are still capable of coming up with great melodies (like "Animal") and an occasional witty line. Even the less distinctive songs are played brutally and efficiently, and there aren't any dead spots here. EP-LP is a great starting point to get to know the Subhumans. ~ Victor W. Valdivia

Subhumans - EPLP (CD 2009)

Subhumans were, between 1980-85, one of the most prolific and original of the evolving UK punk scene; they were based in Warminster, Wiltshire, [SW England], and the lineup was Dick on vocals, Bruce played guitar, Phil on bass, and Trotsky on the drums. Dick had previously sung for The Mental, who released one EP and embodied the 'cant-play-will-play' early punk 'anyone-can-do-it' attitude. Bruce had been in the Stupid Humans, also based in Warminster; these two met at an Angelic Upstarts gig in 1980, and when their bands split they got together to form Subhumans.

Musical influences were a mix of Sex Pistols, Damned, and similar punk originators, and prepunk bands like King Crimson and Frank Zappa, which led to a style of punk more intricate in its structure than their contemporaries, without losing the base energy and dynamics of punk. Dick's lyrics, at once socially aware and heavily critical of social norms, placed them in the anarcho-punk area of the ever-expanding UK punk scene of the early 80s, alongside Crass, Antisect, Conflict, and Flux of Pink Indians, who released the band's first 3 EPs [Demolition War, Reason For Existence, and Religious Wars] and their first LP [in '83] The Day The Country Died, which became an instant classic that went on to sell 100,000 copies,

In `83 they formed their own label, Bluurg Records, and over the next two years released From the Cradle to the Grave LP [which included a 16 minute track of the same name that had the music press calling for a redefinition of 'punk'!] Evolution EP, Time Flies 12" EP, Rats EP, Worlds Apart LP, and 29:29 Split Vision LP, which was released after splitting up in '85. By then they'd played 262 gigs including several European tours and 2 in the USA, [which was in the 80's a rare achievement for a non-commercially minded band].

Dick went on to join seminal ska-punk-reggae band Culture Shock [86- 89, 3 LPs on Bluurg Records], and met up with Phil and Trotsky again in Citizen Fish [89-???], who have so far recorded 7 LPs of their politipunk-ska songs and clocked up over 1000 gigs across the planet...then in `98 these 3 ex-Subhumans roped Bruce back in to reform Subhumans, to 'see what it felt like', and, it feeling rather excellent, have kept going with occasional touring and a limited release CD of old unused songs, Unfinished Business.

New songs are being created slowly but surely for another studio release, and a live one is released as part of the Live in a Dive series on Fat Wreck Chords, it was recorded April `03 in Corona, California during a highly packed-out USA tour, and features 26 tracks that span their entire output and captures the intensity of Subhumans live that studio recordings could only hint at. In August, Queens of the Stone Age recorded and released their version of a Subs song 'Wake Up Screaming', and the film director Asia Argento has asked to use Subs music in her adaptation of 'The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things'.

"Song words are passing moments of thought that can relate forever (if they do do that they are good songs) - from experience combined with imagination". Dick Lucas, Crisispoint zine 1982.

"And remember, life ain't about computers, it's about communication. You know, you and me talking face to face, don't ever forget it." Dick Lucas
