Re: Stranglers - Sprogs?

yeah know what you mean, but I suppose since these guys are our heroes it's kinda natural to want to know more about "JJ the man" as opposed to just "JJ the Strangler". Same goes for Jet and Dave and Hugh maybe it's natural curiosity wanting to know more about them as people, if ...

Re: RIP Captain Tom Moore.

To achieve what he did even at 100 years old is truly amazing. What a great bloke RIP.

Re: Gigs 2021

Really shit situation 're gigs isn't it ? They will be one of the last things to eventually resume, and I just can't see it happening in the foreseeable future unless there is some kind of miracle or complete change of ideas / approach from government. Unless a big change happens soon I think this w...

Re: Best albums of 2020

Without a doubt - Hung Like Hanratty's 'Dragged Up' - it's a great album and it also features the last new song recorded by Dave Greenfield which we'll hear this year [emoji178][emoji445] Great album. But is Fly High actually part of the album ? It comes up as a separate release on Spotify... Anywa...

RIP Paolo Rossi

Anybody who follows Italian football can never forget what he did for Italy in 1982, especially how he turned over one of the best Brazilian football teams of all time with his hat trick, taking Italy into the semis and onto world cup victory.

RIP Diego Maradona

To all football fans, whether you liked him or not, and I know he was contraversial, there's no denying the amazing talent of the man. The best ever ? Probably. He was the real deal, that's for sure. A trait most Stranglers fans would sympathise with. He achieved God like status, and not just for th...

Re: AC/DC

Never seen A.C. DC but would still love to if I ever got the chance. I've probably left it a bit late now though.. It would be a great gig to go to, but their material, I dunno they only ever sing about women & booze really dont they ? I got into the Highway To Hell album, and the one before tha...

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

What’s everyone’s Fave Jam song? Although it’s not on my fave Jam album ‘Setting Sons’ and it’s hard to beat some of their singles but ‘Man In The Corner Shop’ is my fave. Great lyrics, great melody, great song. Absolutely love it. 8) La la la, la la. La la la la la, la la la. La la la la la....la ...

Re: HLH Tribute song to Dave Greenfield

I think it's alright, there's not a great deal to it as a song but it's a nice little tribute just the same...

I listened to their latest album Dragged Up and enjoyed / was ammused by all the songs..
