Technically Hugh is winning - you have to discount the 5-10 posts by the females on here who are just wet for JJ and not the actualy record. :lol:

What about the 5-10 posts that you and other members of the "Cornwell Camp" made, who are just wet for Hugh and not the actual record? Surely that evens things up again :smt025

Only you're wet for Hugh Spooner.

Do you live on Spooner St? Is Peter Griffin your neighbour?

Oooh here we go again with this Cornwell Camp, Pro Hugh bollocks...

If I preffered Euroman to Nosferatu (which I don't) I would vote for Euroman.

I'd be quite insulted actually if one were to just vote for an album just for the sake of it. That's fucking stupid.

Although people know me as being more into JJ's solo work (Un Jour Parfait, the japanese manga songs) in this case I have to say Nosferatu which is without any doubt the best Hugh ever did solo (or with mr Williams in this case).

Why do people refer to'Nosferatu' by Hugh Cornwell & Robert Williams as a Hugh solo album and not 'Fire & Water' by JJ Burnel & Dave Greenfield as a JJ solo album?

Ain't it strange :?:

Not really - When you're in a band any activity outside that band by one of their members is classed as a solo effort. Why do you have a problem with this concept?

Is it fuck!

Dead Men Walking are touring in the near future for example. Capt Sensible is a member of the group but in no way,shape or form would this band be classed as a Captain Sensible solo project...or a Mike Peters or Kirk Brandon one for that matter...just because they're not with their regular bands.

Which part of that concept don't YOU understand?

Ya pudding head! :P

Nope - he left the Stranglers by then

Might be best to start with some Janet & John books Barry
