Vic Godard and the Subway Sect headline The Royal Functions Rooms stage for Music Event One, it’s a free venue with an ME1 wristband or £7 on the door. The stage runs late from 10pm to 2.30am. Vic Godard is a cult icon, emerging from the 100 Club punk scene of 76, debuting alongside contemporaries The Clash and Sex Pistols. Subway Sect were one of the more distinctive acts to emerge from the first wave of U.K. punk, possessing a lean, primal sound that owed a strong debt of influence to the Velvet Underground and the Modern Lovers. The current line-up features Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols on drums.
