I think it was John, Gaz, someone else, and the only once seen Beano on drums with Chas acting as Rodie.  Beano was identified as the drummer in HB #77 by Ennis.  Although you'd think Chas would know who Beano was is he was the Rodie.  But I digress...I'm not sure which of the Newcastle crew besides Gaz were band members though.

Which just shows that the exact line up of Mucous Membrane has never been established.  You got J.C. on vocals, Beano on drums at some point, Gaz on either bass or lead guitar, and then the mystery member.  It wasn't Ben Cox, Frank, Ritchie, or Judith.  There's a story in there somewhere.

Their last gig they opened for some band....only thing I remember from that showwas the headliner's number where Mighty Stonehenge was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf.

Ta-daaaaa!



I got the band who recorded this piece of shit to promise they'll redo the vocals. It's otherwise a decent song if the singer sang worth a fuck. So enjoy this my labor of love for the comic, its creators, this forum, the book's fans, and punk rock.

Had Marquee Moon been released, it would have named the fourth band member Stu.

There was also Les, who appeared in a couple of Azzarello stories, and an unnamed female keyboardist in the Venus of the Hardsell video. For more info, see here.

Oh, maybe. It was never explicitly stated as far as I can recall, though.
