To me this odd backwards take on a solo embodied all I loved about the Stranglers inventions when that album came out.
I agree 100%.
That solo sums up what a Straglers guitar solo should sound like.

I'm slowly working on getting the CD's for some on my favourite albums from my teenage years.
I just got the 3 first Ultravox albums on CD. For some strange reason, I only had the 1st and 3rd album on vinyl.

I recently listed to a greatest hits from the M Ure years, but it felt a little stale.

I hope this tour brings the boys back to Canada for a couple of shows.

I would love to see them start off Two Sunspots. (I wouldn't wet myself but it would bring a big smile to me.)

As for MK2 material, bring back Valley of the Birds.
