Re: Statues and censoring old songs

So should ‘I Feel Like A Wog’, a song which can be easily misinterpreted be deleted from the No More Heroes album? Bring On The Nubiles will have to go too and Burning Up Times (the ending could be considered seriously dodgy) :? Personally I don't like the 'othering' connotations of the lyrics of I...

But we have made huge strides in recent times and Iwe're better than any other country in that regard. So yes there m...

Re: Alexa

You can even ask it to play a specific album. E.g. if you say "Alexa play the album Rattus Norvegicus by The Stranglers", it'll do it as long as you've set it up to access your Spotify account or equivalent...

Re: Your Last Gig

Last Stranglers gig was in France in November with the "Magnificent 7 Wonky Bus". 3 great consecutive gigs. Who would have thought then it would have ended like this [emoji21] Sent from my SM-G920F using Ta...
