The Reading and Leeds music festival took place over the weekend and luckily quite a few acts were televised this year, including the band The Subways. I've been hearing about them for awhile now, but hadn't really paid much attention until I saw them performing at Reading.
The three-piece band puts on a great live show, the drummer is excellent, the singer/guitarist shares vocals with their female bass player Charlotte, who has more energy than most guys who are playing bass on the circuit, running back and forth on the stage and shaking her head around, reminiscent of the old punk bands of the late 70's.
I can't seem to get their song, "Rock & Roll Queen" out of my head and their other songs are just as catchy. Wikipedia has some interesting tidbits about them if you're into band trivia (which I am)!
Here's a video for The Subways' "Oh Yeah" by way of YouTube:
