Dave usually had loads of rings on his fingers, look at any footage of him playing.

Re: Singles

Are you saying if we all played Relentless , or any Stranglers song for that matter , on Spotify then we could possibly get it to No1 . Would multiple plays count or just one count or person ? Used to be easy in the old days , you bought a bit of black plastic and that counted . Yes, that's my unde...

yes.

Re: Singles

Doesn't seem to be a hard and fast rule any more but usually they're either: 1. Given a separate release and artwork on the streaming and download services. 2. "early access" tracks on forthcoming albums (ie pre-order the album and get this track now) 3. A "focus track" with a vi...

Yeah I think the first is probably the best overall but I quite enjoyed the third, Marble Skies, and the Winter's Beach EP which was slightly more experimental in places. Cool, thanx fur that, I gots tix to see them (and Pictish Trail) in Octo...

Re: WHAT THE FCUK ARE YOU LOT LISTENIN TO - When it's not the fucking Stranglers??!

Aint heard the new one yet mate, what would you recommend ? The lead single Spirals is brilliant, some Stranglers-esque bass going on and nice synth parts. Headrush is pretty good too. :smt023 Wots there best album would you say, the first? Yeah I think the first is probably the best overall but I ...

Re: Rat Chat

Goes without saying Jim You appear to have missed out the words "in", "my" and "opinion" again. Indeed. All one has to do is listen to Coup de Grace alongside Hi Fi, or Written in Red alongside Guilty, or Totem and Taboo alongside Giants and it all speaks for itself. T...

Re: Rat Chat

I forget how much I like Baz sometimes.. Baz strikes me as being a down to Earth guy and a genuinely nice person, and I think he's no slouch as a guitarist either - if not a particularly inventive one. He's a bit hit and miss as a songwriter, mind, although he's good when he hits the mark. Still th...
