THE STRANGLERS TOP 40

Just noticed that the Stranglers Official website are asking for fans to send there Top 40 Stranglers tracks to someone who is going to compile all the entries. Wonder if this is being done to assist the band with the 2014 live set list. 8)

Re: Picture House in Edinburgh closing

That will probably mean the band will just book the Dunfermline Alhambra from now on. They seemed to rotate it each year from The Picture House one year to The Alhambra the next.

Re: Just when I thought my day could't get any worse

I liked their early stuff with Peter Gabriel (Trespass, Foxtrot and Selling England By The Pound) but can't be arsed with most of the Collins era with him at the helm (except possibly the albums 'A Trick Of The Tail and 'Duke'). :|

Not to my knowledge, I think this and 'All Roads Lead To Rome' are the only 2 never played live from 'Feline'. 8)

I remember I bought a copy of Aural Sculpture a few years back that had been signed by the band in 'The Tube' studio during their visit to perform live in December 1984, it even came with an attached 'The Tube' with compliments slip inside the sleeve. JJ had put Newcastle '84 next to his signature a...
