  MEMBRANES - JR´S
By submitted

PR5, The Membranes, Crispy Ambulance, @ JR´s I got in my ca, left my house, turned left, then right, second left, third house on the right after the phone box next to the free dogie doo, picked up my girlfriend and sped of to sleazy J. R´s in town.75p each to get in, bloomin eck I thought, cor what a swizz. So much to see a band I used to be closely linked with.From the street I heard Fashionable Junkies, Sounds o.k I thought. I paid and sat around for an hour and a half listening to inaudible disc jockying and a much too loud selection of decent well known ditties. PR5 from somewhere near Preston creaped onto the stage, looked super fashioned and brought many fans with them. The lead singer is tall, miserable and serious. Lyrics written on a piece of paper on the Mic. The first track was typed, rather gloomy and I thought this band were worth listening to. The second song was like the first, so was the third, fourth was like the fifth, fifth was like the second. I´d forgotten what the first was like by this time. The band have talent but why do these sort of band produce this gloomy, sleepy dirge with little originality. A song called Aubergine was slightly different and slightly distinctive. They left after about 45 minutes. I woke up and waited for The Membranes. The Membranes slinked on stage in full throttle. I thought Coofy might have gone home but no, he was giving his all. Almost China, Flexi fame, sounded good but the chorus was a bit weak, good number lads, applause was heard. Fashionable Junkies were next. They played well with a neat change in the middle, Tilly was looking hot and concentrating on the chord changes. A 40 second instrumental was next, called adventures in Lego land. The crowd appreciated it. ´All Roads to Norway´ was my second favourite song. It had a neat tight bass, echoing synth and smashing vocal. I´m sorry to say the tribal African Minibus was pretty poor, everyone seemed to be playing a different song, Ice Age followed shortly after chants from the crowd it was played as well as it could be. Science City, the last track, was raucously played and raucously accepted. I´m glad I stayed and I went up to Tilly and said well done, but he said crap and through his plectrum on the floor. Last on were Cripsy Ambulance. They were doomy and reminded me of Joy Division, so its no surprise that they have been signed up by Factory Records, I can´t remember any song titles but they were all played very well, I found myself faced with a vocalist who move like Ian Curtis the solid gloomy bass and drums gave them that Factory feel. Anyhow, quite a few people seemed to like them. By Martyn Critchley
