The Subway Sect: Bernard Rhodes Great Unknowns Payola Special

Paul Morley, New Musical Express, 4 March 1978

SUBWAY SECT have been together in some form or another since the semi-legendary 100 Club punk festival in September 1976. The line-up on that date was Paul Smith on drums, Robert Simmons on bass, Paul Myers on guitar and Vic Goddard on vocals. Involved in the proceedings were also The Clash – and since then the majority of the few gigs they've done have been with The Clash, through the aegis of Bernard Rhodes.
