I've seen The Stranglers a few times, on the La Folie, Feline and Aurul Sculptures tours. When I was at school my (non Rush) friends were all big Stranglers fans but I never really got into them until The Raven album, even though I new just about every Stranglers song by heart. I sort of lost interest after 10 and I haven't heard ang Stranglers albums post Hugh Cornwell and I've heard none of his solo stuff even though I really liked Nosferatu. My brother has seen him solo a few times and always raves about how good his solo stuff is, perhaps it's time for me to catch up. As an after thought, what do you lot think of Euroman Cometh, the ones who have heard it obviously.

I was lucky enough to see the stranglers a few times in 76/77, but haven't seen them for at least 10 years now and certainly haven't kept up with Hugh's solo stuff...

Is anyone prepared to put a "best of Hugh solo" sampler together ?

Euroman Cometh... JJ Burnel (used to air bass to this man in my youth) ;D
Seen him perform this at the Apollo Glasgow(i think) in a drunken haze many moons ago.
The album was alright, but lacked a bit of the manic bass playing stuff that he was brilliant at on Stranglers albums.
Love the casual "Do the European" track, and in fact i'll dig this album out and give it a long overdue listen

Do you like it Mike?

I've only seen them a few times, once with the now departed Paul Roberts (now has a new band 'Soulsec'), and as they currently are. I'd recommend "Norfolk Coast" which was released a few years back. The last album with Mr Roberts, and tis a belter imo.

When was this gig at the ABC advertised? - Would have liked to have seen that... :-[

If I'm not mistaken I think he played at the Pavilion, directly opposite the Apollo. I really like Euroman Cometh. Do the European is great, as you've mentioned, and Freddie Laker and Triumph were another two I really liked.

Anyone a Stranglers and Porcupine Tree fan?

"How Is Your Life Today" has got "Waltzin Black" written all over it.
