Subhumans were, between 1980-85, one of the most prolific and original of the evolving UK punk scene; they were based in Warminster, Wiltshire and the lineup was Dick Lucas on vocals, Bruce Treasure played guitar, Phil Bryant 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.

Bluurg Records is proud to reissue the Subhumans back catalog on vinyl. Remastered and presented on 180g LP with all original artwork, these re-releases give you another chance to hear one of the original UK punk bands at their very best. The band, which had split off into Citizen Fish in 1990, reunited in 1998 and reappeared in 2004 with two live releases, Live In A Dive on Fat Wreck and the All Gone Live through Cleopatra. Internal Riot is the band's 2007 album, their first studio effort since 1986's 29:29 Split Vision and final full-length to date.
