In 1983 the UK Subs and the Vibrators found themselves at a loose end after some lengthy touring. Old friends Charlie Harper and Ian 'Knox' Carnochan got together and started making some music they shared a common love for.
Along with a cover of the New York Dolls and Iggy & the Stooges, they added their own compositions that fitted. A couple of punk classics emerged; both 'New Barbarians' and 'Limo Life' were chosen for release as 7" singles.
Charlie and Knox, as the Urban Dogs went on to record a number of further albums together, and the collaboration continues to this day.
