I quite liked the modern production on WIR by Andy Gill. I Wasn't too keen on a couple of the songs though.
My thoughts exactly - and totally much better than Suite and expecially Giants
Really? oh well we must be hearing a different album,but opinions are great.

Re: Andy Gill RIP

Sad news,the reason know announcement on Stranglers site is JJ and Dave hated the album and its production,a torrid time for the band,even Dave nearly quit around that time,patchy album with some good songs but also the worst Stranglers song ever IMHO the dire "Miss you",my god they had got to a low...

Randy Andy leave him alone.

I am no fan of the Royal Family but all the nonsense about Prince Andrew (Randy Andy) and his pervy mate Epstein is getting on my wick,yes he showed a lack of judgement being his friend,but I suspect the woman who claims she had sex with Randy is after some dosh,personally I am more concerned with h...

Re: Ginger Baker RIP-possibly the greatest drummer ever?

I was recently trying to list Stranglers songs with an unconventional back beat ( don't know if that's the correct wording ), early stuff going back as far as Rattus. Some really clever beats played by a Mr JB. Tracks like Peaches, Ugly, Dead Ringer, Tolouse...just to mention a few, clever stuff. O...

Incredibly overrated drummer and nowhere near as great as he thought he was, and a massive cunt as a person to boot.
Totally disagree about overrated, not the nicest bloke at times, but at least if he hated people they knew it.

Ginger Baker RIP-possibly the greatest drummer ever?

(apart form Jet) He was tour de force.I know his drum sol's went on and on. But the she...
