Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

Times have changed for sure,. I do...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

Like I say I don't go anymore and maybe the crowd makeup has changed nowday's...it probably has,but I wonder how many pay a ticket price that-'s not cheap on a band that their not to familiar about but know a few of their songs....maybe that is the case. But as for the band more tickets sold to who...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

It's a pretty knowledgeable crowd and fanbse of fans surely on the whole I'm guessing who go to their gigs,I don't think the majority who go wouldn't realise there's only 1 orginal left....surely not,but hey what would I know I don't go anymore to the gigs but when I did it was full of majority of ...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

I think there's too much analysis going on. "The Stranglers" is a fairly recognised name in music. "Hugh Cornwell" or "Jean Jacques Burnel" aren't. If you stay in a band with "The Stranglers" name on it you're gonna get more attention and see more people thro...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

If that was planned its got to be the worst planning ever. I doubt that the CCW rumour was true Hugh left in 1990 and the CCW album come out in 1992. Hugh left it far too long to actually be in the eye of the potential audience he wasn't exactly a Robbie Williams where a huge devoted amount of fans ...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

but saying that how do you leave you can't say in advance and expect the band to be happy about you going at some point and if he had said in advance then there might not of even been a 10 tour the band probably wouldn't continue on with the tour knowing he's off at some point One way would be to s...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

Indeed Hugh was always very professional and you would never have known there was any background problems at all he always gave 100%. On the night he left the band when i was there i thought there was something about that gig that didn't feel right but i think it was more my own personal judgements ...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

I agree that the 10 songs were always better live why? OK the production side of things but they were were good live because many of Hugh's songs were bloody great powerful songs...celebrate live was excellent for me only at the ally,out of my mind is excellent,too many teardrops,man of the earth,h...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

The Production on 10 is horrible,but there are some good songs on it l,Out of my Mind is fantastic IMHO,but Jets drum machine sounds terrible on the Album.Major Kudu. It certainly has its flaws, I don't think it even has a natural single on that album but i find it so enjoyable to listen to. I agre...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

wasn't that the reason for them to bring in those horrible headset mics that they used on AS ? I think there was something like that, and then they stopped using them because the stage lacked a focal point when they could sing anywhere. Yeah that makes sense, it could have been venue related but i ...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

I didn't think anyone was phoning in musically at the end at all. The only sign of problems in retrospect was probably the distance between Hugh and JJ on stage was getting larger all the time. AS and Dreamtime have obviously better songs than 10 but i find 10 more enjoyable to listen to because i ...
