CHILDREN OF GODARD presents
VIC GODARD & JOHNNY BRITTON & THE SUBWAY SECT
"I fell totally into that thing Vic Godard said 'We Oppose All Rock And Roll', avoid all these clichés" Lawrence, Felt (Mojo Magazine, May 2012)
"Whenever Godard adopted a style it became a genre and when it became a genre... he did something else" (The Daily Telegraph, London)
Vic Godard is a vocalist, Subway Sect frontman, songwriter and former postman.
Formed at the suggestion of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, Vic Godard and his Subway Sect have been long-term staples on the post-punk scene since 1976. A resurgence of interest in his work has seen him find fans with, amongst others, Marc Riley on BBC 6Music, who has booked Vic and the Sect for several live radio sessions. 2014 saw the release of an impressive double album career retrospective '30 Odd Years', covering an eclectic range of material, from punk to ska to cabaret/music hall and jazz. 31st March 2019 (Mother's Day) marks the release of a new album, 'Mums' Revenge', available on vinyl on Vic’s Gnu Inc label.
Now with the additional 'Club Left' line up of The Subway Sect featuring onetime Bernard Rhodes protégé Johnny Britton, Rob Marche, Sean McLusky and Chris Bostock (aka The JoBoxers in a previous life), Vic and the Sect make a welcome return to Newcastle. No stranger to The Cumberland Arms, Vic and the Sect's 8th ‘Children of Godard’ night promises to be as memorable as previous years; as always, celebrating the influenced and influences of “the greatest living Englishman”, Vic Godard.

DIY. End girl hate. Party time. Excellent. We are Teesside natives with 3/4 of us based in Newcastle and one stuck in Boro HELP HER. We do party songs about depression, robot girlfriends and stalkers.
+THE NOISE AND THE NAÏVE
Newcastle based Punk/Pop duo. Sometimes described as a “21st century testosterone-free version of Iggy and the Stooges” (Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6). Anne plays the drums and sings, Pauline plays the guitars and barks.
