Re: POLYPHONIC SIZE

You see ? Just as I said, "The Belgian Kraftwerk", not the French Kraftwerk ! :lol:

Re: POLYPHONIC SIZE

Great Polyphonic Size fan you've got there, for sure, but don't be too modest, you obviously did a great job rewriting and correcting all the mispelt stuff from the original text. :mrgreen: :shock: What do you mean by jury-is-out-with-Brussels-Waltz ??! Sounds like a godam great title to me ! Sh****...

Re: POLYPHONIC SIZE

That's a terrible question you ask me, especially with that rubber tape in your hands !... Well, maybe we should stick to French Connection, uuuh ? Or... what about "Brussels Waltz" first title on the 2nd Polyphonic Size LP, obviously Stranglers related track :smt112 ? Anyway, I didn't realized you ...

Re: POLYPHONIC SIZE

Polyphonic's lyrics were sometimes written in french, sometimes in english. For instance, Live For Each Moment (Psize 1st LP) is 60% in french, 40% in english. Walking Everywhere (2nd LP), 75 % in french. Sometimes they could use german or japanese lyrics as well. French connection might sound bette...

Re: POLYPHONIC SIZE

"French Connection".... http://www.strangled.co.uk/SpecialGuests.htm Oh yes, brand new little Polyphonic Size story on http://www.strangled.co.uk ! The title (French Connection) is kinda wrong as the band was from Belgium, not from France. But the article presents a good summary of the PSize story,...

Re: Favourite Stranglers mark 2 track

I've voted for Time To Die, although I think there was something wrong with John Ellis guitar playing on that one. But I'm surprised nobody ask for "Miss You", on the Coup de Grace album. Sung by JJ, beautiful nostalgic sweet & sour song... Could be dedicated to Hugh, maybe.

Re: The Rat's lair - access denied. Again. And again.

I think it's because of Rat's Lair itself. Server trouble. It has already happened before.
For some reason, it seems to affect only some part of the world. I had the same trouble several times with them a couple of years before. They sent an info about that.
Nothing really new on the site anyway.

Re: POLYPHONIC SIZE

Thanks mantheylovetohate. Took me ages to built that site, believe me. Anyway, I don't really understand why this topic has been moved to "Other Bands / Discuss any non-related Stranglers bands". Polyphonic Size was produced by JJ, and featured him on vocals and bass, sounds quite Stranglers-related...

Re: POLYPHONIC SIZE

Thanks, womaninblack. Je T'Ai Toujours Aimée is a track every Stranglers fan should have, cause it got JJ on lead vocals and bass. He even co-signed the song. There was no other version recorded : the first take was the right one. Just perfect.
