What happens when the thing you love begins disappearing in front of your eyes? Adrian Teacher and the Subs debut album Terminal City is a 25-minute, ten song album that documents, in their usual optimistic style, a rapidly changing city, an endangered planet, faltering relationships and personal loss. This Adrian Teacher (most well known as leader of Vancouver, BC's Apollo Ghosts) album gives gentle nods to the 70s UK scene (think proto-punks like Squeeze or Nick Lowe) and is a return to classic form – filtering heavy subject matter through the 2 1⁄2 minute frantically upbeat power-pop song.
Terminal City was recorded to tape at the Bottle Garden in Montreal by Peter Woodford (Freelove Fenner, Moss Lime) and also recorded and mixed by David Carswell (Destroyer, New Pornographers) at JC/DC studios in Vancouver. The Subs have toured extensively with Julie Doiron and Jon McKiel.
As a bonus for customers of the K Mail Order Dept. all copies of Terminal City include an original copy of the poster for the Apollo Ghosts / Calvin Johnson show in Olympia, WA March 17, 2019.
