They probably considered it.Going back to the brass section though,isn't it the case that "All day and all of the night "is spoilt by that bloody honking parping brass section which ruins an otherwise excellent cover.
They spoilt a lot of things back then by putting the bloody brass section in it - was Something Better Change also done complete with brass . How could they even consider that ?
You sound a bit brassed off mate! :grin:

Calling themselves the Stranglers probably wasn't the best ever commercial decision!

If I remember the only time they did 'change' with Brass was at Ally Pally

you may be right, it was played on the 1985 but can't remember if brass present for that track? Perhaps someone with a copy of that Le Zenith gig can investigate.

That's the one I saw . I think though they did it on The Word , prior to Paul Roberts joining , JJ singing an upbeat "cheerful" version of SBC , it just didn't work IMO

Strange that Janice said she wasn't a fan. I thought she seemed to like them in recent years.
