Diminished Responsibility   Recorded 1981

Charlie Harper - Vocals

Steve Roberts - Drums

The story of the recording of "Diminished Responsibility" starts with Mike Leander's production of the single "Party In Paris"  Mike Leander produced (and played most of the instruments) on all the Gary Glitter hits. With the Subs he seemed mostly interested in having another Gary Glitter type hit and was not very interested in the album. The production was very poor. Nicky Garratt stepped in to re-mix, but much of the damage was done at the recording stage. The songs however showed more ambition.

1)  You Don't Belong.   (Harper/Garratt)
2)  So What (Harper/Garratt)
3)  Confrontation (Harper/Garratt/Roberts)
4)  Fatal (Harper/Garratt)

The last single for GEM was their all out attempt to get a top ten single. This included slick production and bribing the band to ware new romantic clothes. It did chart and the Subs played their last Top Of The Pops. They rushed out a limited version with two extra tracks to try and puss the single higher into the charts, but instead it fell. GEM tried to re negotiate the contract but could not make an agreement and the Subs moved on to NEMS records.
