Membranes, 12 Bar Club, London, 20/12/2014/Celebration of Denmark Street Live
Legendary and influential UK post punk band, the Membranes have announced a rare London show for Saturday Dec 20th at the 12 Bar on Denmark St in London.

The gig is a special night - ‘a celebration of Denmark St’ where the band will conduct conversations and tell the history of the legendary music street in the heart of London that is threatened with demolition. The Membranes and another guest band will also play a set each on the night.

The event is day 2 of a ‘west end run’ as the night before sees Goldblade - the Membranes alter ego band playing at the same venue.

The Membranes are working on their first album release for 25 years. 'Dark Matter/Dark Energy’ which will be released by Cherry Red in March 2015. They have been playing wildly received festivals across Europe all summer and have several festivals booked next year and a tour for March/April 2015.

The Membranes formed in 1978 out of punk and DIY culture and then went on their own path. The band reformed a couple of years ago after being asked by My Bloody valentine and then Shellac to play the ATP festivals they were curating. They reformed to play music on their own terms. They are still inspired by punk rock but believe music has no boundaries. The new music weaves noise, drones, found percussion, feedback, discord, melody, free jazz, dub, dark- dub, free punk, heavy rhythms, classical music, orchestras, percussion, near silence, death to trad rock noise and freedom into a unique whole of beauty and noise and enjoys all the contrasts.

The gigs went to so well that the band are working on an album built around the Universe Explained gig they did last year where they got Higgs Boson scientists to explain the universe before the Membranes played a set to finish which was a sell-out show- many venues and festivals are interested in this event for 2015 as well.

There is also a dark cartoon being made about the Membranes as well as a documentary on the band.
