Why would you expect anyone of them to be a member of this forum :?: I'm sure that Stranglers fans & tribute fans can exist without this forum.....which indeed they do/have done so far. That's the problem with some folk on this forum, they think that they are some kind of elite by being a member on here. It ain't true! There's loads of fans out there who don't give a fuck about farty internet banter between the anoraks and saddoes who basically go on about fuck all BUT just get on with being fans, like they have been doing for years. Unlike many on here.

Amen, Barry. Until two years ago I didn't know this forum existed, although its existence enabled me to link up with the other members of "Straighten Out".

I ain't a fan, either.
It's not the Stranglers without Cornwell.

I just thought that if you are going to try and emulate your heroes (For want of a better word) you would try and plug it through the biggest media of The Stranglers, thus getting more attention, like Straighten Out do, that's all

If this forum is the "biggest media of The Stranglers" then the band are well & truly fucked. It's obviously not the case though as hundreds of people see the band over a tour without visiting here once. The forum is basically just about 50 people who can't/won't shut up about The Stranglers. As much fun as it can be we need to have some perspective as to the influence the forum has in the world of The Stranglers. Which is fuck all basically.

So, what would you say is the biggest forum for them to talk Stranglers stuff?

This forum was at one point the one I looked at for dates and meets, but I never commented on any of the subjects as there seemed to be too much aggression towards people.
