Re: Taxi Girl recordings

Best support band of The Stranglers that I have seen. Agreed and I've seen plenty. I got to know them pretty well when they supported the band in the UK, they were good lads and often gave us a lift to gigs or let us kip down in their hotel rooms. :grin: Sounds great. Do you have some more stories ...

Re: GIANTS Cover shot

I've voted 'Written in Red has a much better cover'. Somebody had to do it, I think. :evil: This Giants sleeve is just another exemple of a terrible packaging history : Aural Sculpture, Dreamtime, All Live And All Of The Night, In The Night, About Time (quite similar, that one), and so on... Well, n...

Re: What do our European cousins think about it?

In reply to the quuestion, they probably think 'what a fucked up country England is - politically, economically and every other '...ically!'. This is more or less what I read in french newspaper comments these days. But I don't think you British People should worry that much about that new EU accor...

They are also known in Brussels as Les Vedettes, and have been playing with various bands and singers including Arno (TC Matic). Roger-Marc (lead vocal...

Re: Polyphonic Size Reunion

I don't think there will be any CD reissue. You know how things go with records companies nowadays... But the band is currently working on a download service. And I know they should start recording some new material pretty soon.

Jim it appears on their 2nd album, "Walking Everywhere", produced by JJ back in 1983. Actually, they played several tracks from this LP at the Convention : Le Rocker De La CIA, Walk...
