Kafkas’s Dad and Other Musical Tales by the Membranes
After a 20 year hiatus the Membranes reformed in 2009 to play the All Tomorrows Parties festival at the request of the curators My Bloody Valentine. Not satisfied with simply regurgitating old material the band went on to record the album Dark Matter/Dark Energy in 2015. The album was both critically and commercially more successful than anything they had previously released suggesting a new generation of fans had emerged as well as the old guard. Presumably in response to this their record label Cherry Red released the Box Set Everybody’s going Triple Bad Acid, Yeah!: The Complete Recordings 1980-1993 in December 2017, making a collection of previously difficult to find tunes now available.
What more of an excuse do I need to blast out one Membranes tune after another? If you want the answer to that question join me on Friday 19th January 2018 for an earful of their music. In addition, we’ll be giving away a copy of the album Dark Matter/Dark Energy.
