The Membranes ‘Dark Matter / Dark Energy’ & John Robb’s ‘Punk Rock: An Oral History’ CD & Book Bundle….

An ideal Christmas bundle!

John Robb’s best selling book ‘Punk Rock: An Oral History’ together with The Membranes acclaimed ‘Dark Matter / Dark Energy’ CD – All copies of the book will be signed by John.

‘Punk Rock: An Oral History’ is a book like no other. It is an oral history of a radical movement which exploded in Seventies Britain. With its own clothes, hair, artwork, fanzines and radical politics, Punk boasted a DIY ethos that meant anyone could take part. The scene was uniquely vibrant and energetic, leaving an extraordinary legacy of notorious events, charismatic characters and inspirational music.

‘Dark Matter/Dark Energy’ is the first Membranes album since 1989. It’s awash with their off-kilter mix of angular post-punk adventure, Krautrock-ish soundscapes and edginess.

The album is about the universe, life and death and is inspired by a conversation with Joe Incandela, the head of the CERN project about the Higgs Boson particle (Joe is on one of the tracks). It’s all about the life and death of the universe; during recording, John Robb’s father died and the album is also about him.

‘An extraordinary comeback’ the NME

‘Exciting and angular, their first album for 26 years actually pretty good’ Q

‘Something quite special’ Drowned in Sound 9/10
