Featuring

The Stranglers

The Stranglers appearing at this event

Seventies punk icons whose rat-infested songs plagued both the album and singles charts through the subsequent decade. Their compounded musical talents and enthusiasm, infused with large doses of charisma and dark notoriety goes more than a little way to explaining why The Stranglers have survived the vagaries of the music business. These days The Stranglers have at their core original members Jean-Jacques Burnel (bass), Jet Black (drums) and Baz Warne (guitar), with the lead vocals shared between Warne and Burnel (Burnel singing the songs he originally recorded as lead vocalist, and Warne performing the numbers originally sang by Hugh Cornwell). Keyboardist Dave Greenfield died in May 2020 at the age of 71.

The Membranes

The Membranes appearing at this event

Reformed '77 post-punk band, featuring Goldblade's John Robb. A key influence on bands like Big Black and the US underground, The Membranes are a melting pot of post punk, psychedelic rock, noise and drone, and neo classical pieces. The band claim they are "not a rock n roll project, but a high decibel orchestra playing discordant death disco symphonies about life and the universe and beyond. With music that varies from classic Membranes discordant noise, to drone rock epics, to neo classical orchestrated pieces to psych outs, to a walk on the dark side exercise in post punk with dark dub exercises…”
