oliverj1999 wrote: 27 Feb 2024, 19:40 Heard it ti be particularly Gospel According heavy so hopefully Hallow, JLNOE, Second Coming and Thrown Away. Would like to see some forgotten classics brought back like The Man They Love To Hate, I've Queen, Sinister.
Great choices, all of those would be great 8)

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

Sure you can blame Jet for some lacklustre drum machine work, but I would argue it's Hugh doing a lot of the "phoning in" as you call it, particularly lyrically (Sweet Smell, Celebrate, possibly Man of the Earth). He was right to resurrect Out of My Mind on his recent tour as I think that...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

All I'll say is that if you really want to know what Hugh brought to The Stranglers, then listen to the first ten albums and compare with everything after, especially the albums with JJ, Jet and Dave on them. I mean, 'nuff said. It speaks for itself. Mk1 was spent before Hugh left. I get your point...

A bit like if JJ Burnel & Friends released a live album for RSD.
Oh wow, I didn't know Baz was a founding member of Kraftwerk.
Oh no, hang on...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

Choosey Susie and Hallow have both been played live multiple times. Choosey by MKII a few times in 1995, Hallow not since the 80s. I can't imagine it being Too Precious. Tomorrow Was is a possibility, but I would have thought they'd have played that in the really early days. I reckon a deep cut from...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

One is going on tour as Hugh Cornwell, the other is going on tour pretending to be The Stranglers. One is on tour as a guy who's played on 10 Stranglers albums and about 10 solo albums. One is on tour featuring a guy on all 18 Stranglers albums (plus 2.5 solo albums), plus a guy on 4 Stranglers alb...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

What it is, is two members of the original line up playing music from the original period alongside music composed after that. One has the legal, commercial rights and brand of that original material including the band name, the other uses his past involvement and the logo style of the original to ...

It's been over 33 years since Hugh was in the Stranglers. The Stranglers have existed for over 33 years without Hugh Cornwell. Key point here: The Stranglers. Well that's the facts and stats......like or loathe what type of a band they've been since his departure up to now presently they were and h...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

PS Yeah, as I say, some stuff from Feline or In the Night would really great to hear.

Basically if the set is going to be 75% 77-79 stuff then I'm going to be disappointed. I could probably handle 50%, but 75% would be taking the piss. 80s, 90s and 00s stuff please.

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

That "banter" was cringey for sure, but it was also over 15 years ago, so I don't think he would say it now... Baz still says that often doesn't he? I haven't heard him say it my uni days from what I remember, but then again I don't go to as many gigs as other people so I'm willing to be ...

Re: 50th Anniversary Setlist?

,do you want to sing with the Fookin Stranglers? The answer is know I don't thanks very much, That "banter" was cringey for sure, but it was also over 15 years ago, so I don't think he would say it now... Yes, take a leaf from Hugh's book and play obscure albums tracks from the recent alb...
