Re: dark matters chart chances

I'm sure it would make a difference to the band for them to be able to say "this is our first ever number one album - the perfect tribute to Dave". But with less sales than say Aural Sculpture, would it have any meaning? They seemed to enjoy being able to say that "and if you see Dav...

Re: If something's going to kill me...

It’s a real trumpet on the track. Now that would have been an interesting thing for them to say in the video, and tell us who played it, or perhaps have a bit of footage of them recording it. I've been watching "Classic Albums" on Sky Arts, and I'd really like to see proper films of them ...

If something's going to kill me...

Track chat now up: https://www.facebook.com/thestranglers/videos/517770259340236 I haven't listened to the preview that was on the Liz Kershaw show since it first appears, but this sounds a bit more "complete" to me. Presumably the brass is done on keyboards, though they might have mention...

Not much, and I bet most of the Undertones airplay is for "Teenage Kicks".

Has Jim got several albums under his belt? In The Stranglers?

Of all the different blood groups, Type-O's make the most spelling mistakes.

I have a (the?) Rialto song in my car. And the Gin Blossom, the Auteurs s and a few other random names. Not a proper fan, though, these are just singles.

Re: Crap Joke No.83840370

A Texas farmer goes on holiday to England. He is talking to an English farmer. "How long would it take to drive around your farm?" "Well, probably an hour or so" "An hour? It would take me 12 hours back home. What do y'all think about that?" "Yeah, I had a car like...

Re: Crap Joke No.83840370

John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird’s mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. John tried and tried to change the bird’s attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything ...

My bright shirts make those in these latest "behind the scenes" videos look tame, I can tell you. One day, they will see the light again. I almost said "will be back in fashion", but I doubt they were ever that.

Re: JJ and Baz together again at last.

Indeed, I don't wear black because I want to be like the Stranglers, I'm just happy wearing a dark colour. Like I said, it helps me to blend into the background, where I am content not to be noticed wherever possible. The only time my clothes aren't black is when I've been wearing them a bit too lon...
