The Members formed in Surrey, England in the incendiary heat of summer 1977. They were one of the first UK punk bands to successfully blend reggaes offbeat rhythm with punk’s rebellious aggression. The touring band consists of original Members JC CARROLL and CHRIS PAYNE together with punk rock legend RAT SCABIES on drums.
Their first record, “Solitary Confinement” was released in 1978 on Stiff Records and is now a much sought after collector’s item. Their first single on Virgin Records “Sound of the Suburbs” has sold over a million copies since first being released in 1979, and is still featured on countless punk & new wave compilations over 30 years later.
