The Members Gig Review

The corner flag screamed sounds of the suburbs on Friday night as the Members made a return to sunderland playing a loud set of punk rock 1970’s classics.

Supported by local dystopian rockers Waste of space and Dr Feelgood; influenced by pub rock Sound reaction. The night was destined to have a mixed variety of loud shouting and screaming guitars.Waste of space took to the stage, kicking off their unique dystopian punk rock style 3 piece with lead singer Chris shouting out before kicking off their first song. Before performing their new single Nepal which was recently released on forgotten city records at the end of 2015. They ended the full set with a wall of noise before shouting out “i’m not finished yet” and ending the set with a crash of guitars and symbols.

Pub Rockers Sound Reaction took to the stage next with their 4 piece band, performing a full set of originals of Dr Feelgood influenced rock. With their lead singer standing out and singing loud. One song to stand out of the set was called “walking the streets at night” from the first chord it sounded almost like a Dr Feelgood track, you will be able to catch this on their EP which is coming out soon.

The Members came on with a loud set of those classic punk tracks, everyone was looking forward to hear. With only a 3 piece for the night the lead guitarist Nigel and bass player JC took turns on the vocals singing classic hits such as “Chelsea Nightclub”, “Police Car”, “Working Girl” and not to mention that classic hit “The Sound of the Suburbs”.

"The Bunker is a superb place to have in Sunderland, it is a breeding ground for talent and without it I doubt I would have ever become a professional musician. I have been going there for 15 years and it's better than ever. It's soulful, ethical and affordable and the city would be screwed without it. I love it."

"Sunderland owes a great deal to the Bunker. Not just because of the bands it has helped to nurture. Well known bands reveal only a fraction of the important work that the bunker does. The work the bunker does is truly invaluable and our City cannot do without it!
