  • Sound of the Suburbs

    Classic Members Hit

48 Years of Alternative Music

Established in 1977 The Members are one of Englands Best Loved Bands, Their eclectic Mix of Punk Reggae Surf and Pop and Anthemic Songs including the million selling Sound of the Suburbs and Offshore Banking Business 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. JC Carroll still leads the band with panache, invention and an uncompromised sense of justice. Honour is due.

- Neil Spencer, The Observer & Uncut
