“The Sound of the Suburbs” 40th anniversary concert


The Members were one of the most imaginative guitar bands to emerge in the aftermath of the 1977 punk explosion. Their massive top ten hit ‘The Sound of the Suburbs’, was produced by Steve Lillywhite and reached #12 in the UK charts along with a memorable appearance on BBC1’s ‘Top of the Pops’. Follow up single “Offshore Banking Business” showed the band’s love of Reggae. Their first LP, ‘Live at the Chelsea Nightclub’, released in 1979, was listed as one of the top 20 punk albums by Record Collector Magazine. The second album “1980 – The Choice is Yours” cemented their place in the UK’s new wave scene. 1982’s “Going West” LP featured a reggae version of Kraftwerk’s “The Model”, but was to be the band’s last before they split.
