QuoteThe only let down on the night was that they only played for 90 minutes and that included two encores .. Or maybe its just the fact that Rush can play for nearly 3 hrs and now im expecting other bands to do likewise . That band Rush have spoilt me ...
QuoteThis is my fave band after Rush. :)
QuoteActually, although they don't QUITE make it for me, they're close. I bought Jailbreak and Rattus Norvegicus on the same day and played them both to death. Very different albums but both had long lasting effect on my diverse musical taste and I remember them with extreme fondness.
QuoteYou have very good taste Alex... theyre two of my most enjoyed albums. 8-)Have you tried Mr Cornwell's solo stuff?
QuoteNo I haven't - in fact, I didn't even know there was any :-[I was really into the Stranglers in the beginning - they were the first band I attempted to be a completist for and have all their singles and EPs up until Nuclear Device. I still listen Rattus and Heroes quite regularly but my favourite is Black and White. For me, they went off the rails after that. I've got Raven (but rarely play it) and haven't listened to MIB since it came out in 81. I broke my leg badly playing football in February of that year and was hospital/house bound for 10 weeks. During that time, my friends bought me the new releases of the bands they knew I liked. I hardly listened to MIB but that may not be because it was crap but becasue it was brought round the same day as Moving Pictures!I haven't bought anything by the Stranglers since then.
QuoteBlack and White , I agree is their best listen , and im lucky enough to have it on marble vinyl, with the "tits " ep included ,but The Raven , i love as well , and runs it a close second.MIB has been stated as the bands favourite album, but i think theyre talking bollocks.... experimental yes, but not their best.
QuoteThat was how I felt when I saw Foreigner in 2002 in Detroit in between two Vapor Trails gigs.
QuoteMy copy of B&W is on black vinyl but came with the 'tits' EP on white. My vinyl copy of Raven has a 3D cover (the sort where you tilt the image and it moves). Not sure if that was the usual cover or not. :-/
QuoteI must admit i havent been to see Hugh since he went solo . But my mates rave about him all the time ,he still sings alot of Stranglers songs at his gigs. Seemingly the two most popular solo albums he has released are NOSFERATU and WOLF .
