Back in the days when London had the [a=Sex Pistols] and Manchester had [a=Buzzcocks], the Midlands had to make do with Suburban Studs, formed in Birmingham in 1976. Given this date they can be considered as one of the original punk bands.

They released one LP and two singles, all in 1978 but are better known for their gigging schedule. They supported the Sex Pistols and [a=Clash, The] at London's 100 Club in 1976, they also headlined in Birmingham later the same year with the Clash supporting them.

Despite playing all the right venues (including the Roxy and the Marquee), supporting all the right bands (they toured with [a=AC/DC]), doing a Peel Session, and appearing on an ATV punk rock special the band never generated the sales of the other big punk bands of the time.

They split without having managed a single chart hit.
