"The Subway Sect story is one of the strangest, and therefore one of the best. Vic Godard indicated ways that pop should go. He dropped hints, left clues. It is all there." —Kevin Pearce

"This is Vic reflecting on a lifetime in the music business. It sounds like a record that he had to make and is perfect for now. When I was a kid, I used to make up my fantasy punk band with members from different bands and they almost always contained Vic Godard and Mick Jones. The songs are as good as it gets and with Mick Jones producing and playing piano, what do you need?" — Jim Reid, Jesus & Mary Chain
