THE MEMBERS: THE ORIGINAL SOUND OF THE SUBURBS
"Established in 1977, The Members are one of England's best loved bands, Their eclectic mix of punk, reggae, surf, pop and anthemic songs include the million-selling Sound of the Suburbs and Offshore Banking Business which are part of the Great British Alternative Hymn Book. The Members were always the thinking punk’s band of choice; angry but intelligent, a suss reggae sensibility and songs that, like the Jam’s, resonated in the suburbs as well as the city. Panache, invention and an uncompromised sense of justice... honour is due." -NEIL SPENCER, THE OBSERVER
