“Like King Arthur’s knights buried beneath the soil of Merrie Englande we are ready to be called on in the country’s hour of peril,” Membranes frontman John Robb recently proclaimed to The Quietus. ‘We were called. And we will play … Only noise and confusion can save us from the apocalypse … the thunder of hooves and the clash of metal armour … rise up … rise up.”
Confused? To put it in layman’s terms, the Lancashire based punk outfit has reunited after almost 20 years to perform at the upcoming ATP Nightmare Before Christmas. The Membranes are the newest act confirmed for the festival, which is scheduled to take place between December 4th and 6th in Minehead, England. Also featured are Ariel Pink, Josh Pearson, Sonic Youth, De la soul, E.P.M.D., Sun Ra Arkestra, and The Horrors among others.
