A Welsh Stranglers. Well, they're not backward at bigging themselves up when you read their blurb.

They make themselves sound better than the Real Thing...no sorry, the Stranglers. :grin: :grin: Did you see how much they want for a gig??

And oooh, every third Friday in a local pub. They've got to come up and play Glasgow and then we'll find out if they'll last to play a second song...

Saying that, I'm always open to hearing 'new' old stuff and try to give people a chance,

anyone live near Usk or Ross-on-Wye and thinking of takin' a chance?? Post a revue

Understatement not part of their package then. It’s that old chestnut of arrogance driven by ignorance.
Isolate the critisism and pass it on.

I'm not going to call anybody for paying tribute to The Stranglers but:

£1000 for a one hour set plus expenses?? :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

No wonder there's only three confirmed gigs.

Has anybody seen or heard anything from these guys? I for one would be interested to have a look/listen.

Am guessing I'm not the only one to have searched for them on Youtube and to have found that all the suggested links had very little to do with music :shock: :smile:

In this day and age it's not hard to get a video uploaded so we can see and hear how good they are. Very poor effort on that front. How on earth do they think they'll get any bookings sight unseen! :roll:
