Subway Sect – Ambition (1978)

Scroll down to content

I’d discovered the Velvet Underground and the New York Dolls, and I was waiting for punk to happen. Living in Glasgow there were only one or two punks around, so they stood out. I didn’t wear bin bags, spike my hair or anything like that, I was more about wearing charity shop clothes that looked right, like straight trousers. Wearing straight trousers was quite confrontational when most blokes wore flares.
