The roguish Membranes are back with the brilliant triple A-side ’If You Enter The Arena, You’ve Got To Be Prepared To Deal With The Lions’; their first offering in nigh on 22 years. Released in a limited 7 inch vinyl run of just 500 on Louder Than War, you’d better get your mitts on it quick from the Southern webshop, or as a download direct from Louder Than War. The title track sits proudly on it’s own on the A side, with the feisty “B.O.O.T.S.” and euphoric “Everything’s Brilliant” bringing up the rear on the B side.
It seems only too right that Louder Than War should be the label of choice for releasing the long-awaited new Membranes single, with their frontman, John Robb, being the actual founder of the label which sprung from the influential music site of the same name. Aiming primarily to provide a platform for emerging artists discovered by the discerning eyes and ears at Louder Than War, their releases will also see the occasional nugget from legends, or in this case gladiators, from the music world. To see exactly what we mean, take a look at the Membranes entering the arena in style…
If you weren’t convinced to go and add this gem to your collection before, surely you will be now.
These lions and dashing outfits were brought to you for the princely sum of £35
