49. The Members – Sound of the Suburbs (1979)

And here are The Members, a punk band from Surrey, striking back at the city from the suburbs. (We should always remember that London is defined as much from the outside as it is from within…)

I had the real privilege of giving a talk at the University of York last week where I had the pleasure to meet Mark Jenner, and he steered me towards this song. And so let me send a raucous “Oy!” out to Mark for this track. Oy!
