Mines Relentless. Baz's vocals really work on this one. Its a real stunner. In fact this could be my favourite ever Stranglers track or certainly in my top five.

I've grown into a not such a big fan of "Summat" thesedays. The strings were pulling thats its angry JJ again but theres something about the vocal delivery on the record that is off putting from when it was played at western super mare. The vocal sounds like lemmy with a frog (no pun intended) in his mouth. And the words Amego, & Texto he surley could of come up with something better. The WSM bootleg version is 100% better than the album version specially when he screams "You really are relentless"

I remember hearing Summat for the first time at Guilfest 06 and thinking what the fuck is this? But I like it now. Its a strange song that most non Stranglers fans would probabably hate. I don't think the Guilfest crowd enjoyed it but they certainly enjoyed the rest of the set.

I was at Guilfest 06 aswell. "Never to look back" was the best song of the gig & "Dag dave"
