I know its a stupidly obvious choice but I'd go with Golden Brown. Its a fucking great solo.

To me this odd backwards take on a solo embodied all I loved about the Stranglers inventions when that album came out.
I agree 100%.
That solo sums up what a Straglers guitar solo should sound like.

You can't call Sometimes a solo its like 3 notes. Right now it's kirk "The ripper" Hammet "The end of the line"

:smt035 :smt035 :smt035 :smt035 Kirk rules.


No "Something Better Change" in the list :shock: :shock:

If it is solos you are after look no further than

'Bitching' has stuck in my head for years, not so much the melody but the sound. Think HC's Telecaster had an extra homemade pickup bodge that gave it a weird tone.

'Tits' is another 'face melter' but like Eric Morecambe he's playing all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order!

I think my favourite is the double tracked 'Goodbye Toulouse' solo, marvellous!

I had the same sensation with "Bitching" - somehow it epitomizes the Stranglers sound in that early period and Hugh's guitar is especially strong on that track. It was my fave track of NMH at the time.

All the above are superb, obviously. I think La Folie deserves a mention too, Hugh solos throughout the track. Can't seem to remember Dimebag playing for the Stranglers tho, what Mk was that? ;-)
