“While U.K. Subs was at the heights of its fame, during the Another Kind of Blues era, it was filmed playing the Lyceum for use in this mockumentary. There are episodes of the band playing live, but this is no concert DVD and there are no complete songs. Instead, this was parody film in the tradition of World War II morale-boosting propaganda. Punks have it tough on the front lines in this funny film narrated by BBC voice-over legend John Snagge. Along with a photo gallery is another bonus feature, Nicky Garratt exhibiting his collection of U.K. Subs memorabilia. This includes albums, CDs, framed posters and news clipping with his explanations and commentary.
