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. They still regularly perform, albeit with an ever-changing line-up of band members. 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 boys for several live radio sessions. Meanwhile 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/musichall and jazz.
The Sexual Objects are the latest outfit of the legendary Davy Henderson, previously of the hugely influential post-punk band The Fire Engines, 80s art popsters Win! and Nectarine No. 9. Hendersen spews a languid croon that sounds like Bob Dylan in the mid-sixties over an appealing Bolan-esque boogie, glamming it up like a reverbless Jesus & Mary Chain.
