In the mid-80s UK’s Wiltshire-based punk bands Subhumans, Organised Chaos and AHeads all called it a day, and members of each got to create Culture Shock- who brought a refreshing original blend of reggae-driven bass, rollercoasting drums and punked-up ska guitar to an alternative scene that welcomed their original combination of danceable tunes and socially aware lyrics. Two hundred gigs and three albums later, they called it a day.
Twenty-three years on, following the release of their ‘Everything’ CD box set, and with fans continually asking to hear the songs live again, previous members Dick, Jasper and Bill have got together with Alex on guitar – carrying on the spirit of Nige, who sadly passed on in 93 – and are now back gigging again! Following a sold-out reformation tour in the UK, they last year went around the USA with NY band World Inferno Friendship Society, and have released an album of new songs called ‘Attention Span’ on Alternative Tentacles Records, which has been getting rave reviews, hailed as their best album yet and a welcome continuation from where they left off
