Vic Godard

Vic Godard. Singer. Songwriter. Punk maverick. London, September 2009

On September 20th 1976 Vic Godard and his band Subway Sect played the 100 Club alongside the debut of Siouxsie and the Banshees, the Clash and Sex Pistols. 

While the other groups that night became mainstream Vic Godard has charted a more esoteric career over the last 40 years, including a 40’s crooner inspired album and recording with such mavericks as Dennis Bovell, Weekend, Edwyn Collins and being the catalyst behind JoBoxers.

He also wrote one of my favourite songs.
