Culture Shock

7 Followers

Culture Shock is an anarcho-punk / ska punk band formed in Warminster, Wiltshire, England, in 1986 by Dick Lucas, previously of the Subhumans. Over their four year history the band played hundreds of gigs, including frequent appearances at free festivals, and released three studio albums on the Bluurg record label. Lucas’ lyrics were mostly concerned with social and political issues, from cruelty to animals, Northern Ireland, war, and social alienation, but were far from angry rants, often finding a positive and empowering perspective. Culture Shock split at the end of 1989, as Bill and Nige both had young families to support. Dick went on to form Citizen Fish with Jasper, the bassist on Culture Shock’s final album, and two other former members of the Subhumans. However, after over 20 years it has recently been announced over Facebook that Culture Shock are to reform and start touring in October! The line-up will stay the same except with Alex (from Citizen Fish) on guitar as Nige unfortunately died in 1993. Culture Shock performed at the Canon Frome Court Summer Party on the 21st of July 2013, and are performing at Pivo Pivo in Glasgow on 12th October 2013.
