Dear Stoke,

We regret to announce that we will not be appearing tonight at the Eleven Music Venue as advertised.

On Monday evening we became aware that one of the supports bands may have right wing associations. In order to make a clear and well informed judgement on the most appropriate course of action, we took the time to research whether this was in fact true. We found that in the past the band had members of a now infamous right wing band whose name we won’t mention.

We aren’t going to argue the semantics of whether the band in question are or aren’t a right wing band, they very well may not be. However, to our level of satisfaction, we were not convinced the band had proactively attempted to dissociate themselves from their former right-wing members, or other individuals/organisations who closely identify with the politics and ideologies of their former right-wing members. Therefore, we presented the promoter with an ultimatum - us or them. He chose them.

And so it’s unfortunate but we have to stick to our guns on this one.

UK Subs are an anti-fascist, anti-racist, anti-political extremist band, and on this we could not be clearer. We encourage others to offer the same kind of clarity.

Charlie, Alvin, Steve and Jamie
