Re: Best song on Written In Red

In a While is a great tune, head and shoulders above anything else on there IMHO. So no prizes for guessing where its one vote came from.

Hugh - Another Kind of Love VHS Promo

Ah, good old VHS ;-) Anyway, one for the completists - this was a promo I acquired from a record company rep via my mate at Virgin Megastore. It's the one with the Sledgehammer-style plasticine animation:

Please help a thickie

Trying to use the message section for the first time (to PM a new convention buddy of course!) and the message is stuck in my outbox instead of showing as 'sent'. Any thoughts on what I haven't pressed? Thought there was a FAQ but couldn't find it. In my defence I am a bit tired of course .... Cheer...

Re: JOHN ELLIS'S GUITAR UP FOR AUCTION ON EBAY NOW !

It's hardly Rock and Roll Hall of Fame stuff is it. I have visions of somebody taking the guitar to Antiques Roadshow in 5 years and the expert saying "John Who?" If anybody's interested, I've got some of Charlie Harper's dandruff and a piece of Glen Matlock's stair carpet from 1976. £17,500 the pai...

Re: Daves Keyboard Rig: A History - D'ya wanna blow ya hymen

Dave now uses CME controller keyboards - these are the shiny red ones. They don't make any noises themselves but control synths in a rackmount. The one replacing the Minimoog is just a smaller CME. You may have noticed of course, that the mad solo in Nice n Sleazy now sounds like a load of crap live...

'Semi retirement' ??

Just came across a mention of the band's forthcoming 'semi retirement' after the current tour. Apologies if this is old news - does anybody know which interview JJ said it in? I'm not that surprised, but does anybody know if it's true? http://www.manchesteracademy.net/Artist%20Pages/thestranglers.ht...

Re: 1st STRANGLERS GIG

Nov 15th 1981, Birmingham Odeon, La Folie Tour. I was 15 - don't remember a huge amount, but I made my Mum buy me a donkey jacket to wear to look a bit edgy (!) - was this the tour with Taxi Girl on, I think they were first support - and in a very quiet bit somebody shouted wanker off the balcony, i...

Ash do JJ Bass

Any fans of Ash can see some interview clips at www.tufs.co.uk , discussing their festival schedule and the new single Return of White Rabbit. You will not believe how much this track sounds like the Stranglers but with Joe and Mick on vocals !! The bass sound could be off Black and White, I kid you...
