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 throu...

Re: Strangler in the light

If you define the "blame" as JJ holding grudges then that's in his remit. I don't get the feeling Hugh has a grudge against JJ - I think he's disappointed they couldn't remain on speaking terms or whatever. I can't for one second imagine Hugh writing a book like JJ's and going to town on e...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

Wildly off topic but as you asked https://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engin ... view=match

9th August 1990 so it may well have been highlights

EDIT: Just noticed that was the start date and there was play 9th - 14th August 1990

Re: Strangler in the light

He knows it, a lot of the fans know it, but some won't accept it and think everyone else is to blame

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

Ok I can exclusively reveal the following.... Set 1 will be party hits. Get the 50th party vibes going. The band have been working hard on covering Russ Abbott's Atmosphere, D.I.S.C.O, 99 Red Balloons etc Then Set 2 takes the tempo back down with acoustic versions of Stranglers classics Encore Heroe...

Re: Support

Didn't they say there isn't any and that's why they're doing 2 sets?

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

10 had some good tunes. The production let's it down along with 2 or 3 terrible songs. They were drifting into the 90s. Guitar based music was going out of fashion. I can't imagine the follow up album being that great if they'd had stayed together but then ITN is pretty lame with even worst producti...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

even when the band had 3 originals left they still brought out some crap albums to their name That's a very good point. Having the original members was only great when they were 'on it'. Let's face it, it all went downhill after Rattus really didn't it! [emoji2] Jesus not at all! Jim Sent from my P...
