Beginnings

The Subways, formed in 2003, began at an early age, and currently have an average age of 21. The Subways began by playing Nirvana and songs in Billy and Josh’s lounge, under the name of Mustardseed. They later changed their name to Platypus, and began to tour small, local venues, such as The Square in Harlow, Essex. An early CD of the band playing live was recorded at The Square which they sold at gigs.

As their reputation grew, Billy in particular became annoyed with all the different names the band were coming up with. He came up with The Subways, apparently from his days hanging out. “One of the few places where I felt I could refuge and find peace in my old town of Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, England was in a subway under the roads and pavements. I would haunt there in between breaks at work and college.” Feeling the most free at that time underneath the rat-race of economic town life, he thought it only appropriate to divulge this “free essence” he felt in that subway to the band, where he felt he could truly escape from the drudgery of everyday life.
