Biography

The Suburban Studs were an obscure punk rock band formed in Birmingham UK in 1976 that fell through the cracks. They were signed by the independent punk label Pogo Records and marketed through the more well-known WEA Records. They pulled off the unusual feat of churning out 2 singles and even an album in as little as a year, an impressive amount not usually achieved by other punk bands of that era. Their first London performance was at the 100 Club in August of 1976. They were supporting bands to the more popular Sex Pistols and The Clash. A quote by John Ingham describes their set as "a laughable mixture of tacky jumpsuits, tacky make-up, tacky props and tacky music". By October of the same year, they'd made themselves over into a more punk-looking group but still used the tired and "tacky" glam set they'd used at the 100 Club. Their album received few enthusiastic responses in the music reviews. They were reduced further to being nothing more than fodder for gossipmongers dishing the dirt about band members involved in "punk violence" and outrageous fan shenanigans. The band, who never really attracted the limelight in the first place, just faded from the scene.
