Re: Best Hugh Cornwell solo album/side project - 2016 editio

'Hooverdam' was deliberately lo-fi, though. That's the reason that people use the studio and producer that Hugh worked with on the album - it was recorded on very old equipment that hasn't been used in professional recording studios for decades. Deliberately or not, it just didn't work for me. Whic...

Is that what you want for you and your children's f...

Re: The EU : Do we stay or do we go ?

Looks like a clusterfuck to me. The country is split down the middle, promises of the leave campaign have already been exposed as bullshit, the current government are currently backstabbing each other in a hilarious shitshow of cretinous buffoonery, the opposition party are tearing themselves into t...

Re: The EU : Do we stay or do we go ?

Very happy. Regaining democracy and sovereignty is a great thing. At the expense of the country's economic future it's not. really? Doesn't appear that the Armageddon predicted has arrived. Ever feel you've been taken for a mug? Meanwhile, those who put the country's long term future ahead of 2p of...

Sad sad news.I hope the people who voted to leave are happy with whats happening now.Things will calm down but people voted on one issue and didn't see the bigger picture. . Very happy. Regaining democracy and sovereignty is a great thing. At the expense of the country's economic future it's not.

Re: Which is your favourite Stranglers album cover?

One of my favourites, if not my actual favourite is probably Aural Sculpture.

Definitely...still went for Never Say Goodbye though, one of Hugh's best lyrics.

It's a very underrated album on the whole. Probably my second favourite after The Raven...though it is very much a mood album.
