Re: Toby interview

Seems Toby and Louie plan to look into working on the keyborad sounds to 'restore' them to the original using some of the latest gear now available. That would be a good thing.

https://www.snoozecontrol.be/english/11212/ Thanks Covid for the delay and thanks to the crowdfunding to make it financially possible. But the wait was worth it. Arbre A Filles (French for 'girls-tree') is a masterpiece by this Belgian DIY icon - or should we say 'Belgium's best kept secret'? Per W ...

Re: The Clash vs The Stranglers

Much of the song writing, particularly Janie Jones, is like playground or nursery rhyme chants, and the production on the albums is irritating.

Re: This current Stranglers is still The Stranglers.

For some people the Stranglers are still the Stranglers at moments when it is just Stranglers and not the not Stranglers making any noise.
Those moments have gotten rarer.
Used to be quite a few moments like the intro the Raven & Golden Brown, now just the intros to Heroes and Peaches.
