For those who don't know what the fuck I'm on about here goes. At the end of 2001 Paul Roberts wanted to go on the road to promote some of his solo stuff with Baz Warne also in tow and occasionally Richard Naiff from The Waterboys on keyboards. Instead of touring via the normal channels fans who were up for it were given the opportunity to organise their own gigs for them. Yup, I was one of the volunteers!

In March 2002 the tour finally hit the road and I'm sure all of those fans who witnessed these gigs have some great memories. I will add more to this thread when I get the time (in particular piccies from the Golden Fleece gigs)
wrapped up in the middle of a tour at the mo barry but have some great memories of these gigs and also baz solo at the golden fleece great times :smile: :smt006

Yeah shame I'm gonna miss them, this forum is turning into a joke when you can't mention Paul Roberts any more, I know he didn't fit in with everyone and everyone is entitled to their opinion but as I said this started out as a thread about TBC taking a trip down memory lane and you Jim just shot him down in flames for no other reason that he mentioned Paul Roberts. This is your forum Jim and if you don't want things being said about him well its your rules, but I thought this was a forum about The Stranglers and all things related, I was wrong and this thread proves that.

See ya,

You were my first customer Keith! :smt006

Can't believe I've known you for 10 years let alone anything else. Very fond memories of those nights with Paul Roberts/Faith Band/Baz Warne at The Golden Fleece.

last saturday was the 10th anniversary of paul & baz's show at the invernairn hotel in the town of nairn,a few miles along the road from inverness.it was a brilliant night and from what i've heard/read about over the years,it was considered the best night of the tour.there was a small amount of people at the gig.i think more had travelled from england,glasgow,holland than were actual locals.didnt have the interenet then and as the stranglers didnt seem to get any publicity then it was the first time i even saw what baz looked like.they worked brilliantly together and with the audiance getting involved the show was probably the funniest gig i've ever been to.there was a load of stuff done from pauls solo albums and a few stranglers things.they both wore kilts and there was amusing banter about that.all the gigs on this tour were recorded and cds were avaiable of them.i got all the scottish shows and the aylsebury one where steve hogarth from marillion joined them for a song or two.

Hang on a minute. Joking aside between me and Spooner I think you're taking this a bit too seriously. I had no intention of deleting or locking this thread - never crossed my mind for a second. Also, I never said you can't mention Paul Roberts - that would be ridiculous. I just thought that a thread such as this would probably be more deserving of an appearance not in the middle of a UK tour. That said, looking at some of the decent posts on this thread I'm proved wrong.

Personally, I was unaware of these gigs ( :oops: ) - I had just refound the band after a 10 year sabbatical from seeing them live - still kept the 'faith' by buying the records - but in 2001 they returned to Belfast and the bug was re-awakened.

Please recount for the uninformed, as I for one would be interested....
Allow me to re-arrange your face, sometimes I'd really like to get to know you better
