There’s another live vid with him/Godflesh on youtube somewhere and he’s wearing a Stranglers Raven t-shirt but can’t bloody find it at the mo.
You think the Great Elmyr is in fact Justin Broadrick ? Interesting idea. I did find a photo of Justin with a Raven t-shirt on, but not a video.
On second thoughts no, I was very very very drunk at the time when I thought that.

I now think too as suggested already that infact The Great Elymr could be just one person with one other filming, looking forward to the Elymr doing some more stranglers covers soon.... genetix or Hallow would be great.

Or the whole thing could be one big fake considering the name "The Great Elmyr"

Here's a link which is also funnily enough Stranglers related

It's actually quite a clever name to have chosen - he's not the original but he does excellent 'forgeries' of some of the Stranglers' music 🎶😎 More power to him, the videos are good too 👍

What do you mean by 'Forgeries' of some of their music?

Cover versions. The original Elmyr was a famous art forger, so that's why this cover artist chose his name. Pretty clever!

Dont bring harry....from the great elymr what great keyboards from this artist that reminds me again just how good Daves input to this song was at the time.Well done for yet another great cover from the Great Elymr.This artists take on JJs vocals as in the past with daves too especially on Peasant is very well done.I take my hat off especially if it is just one person doing all this,quite incredible.

Yep Enough Time has a great black and white video with effects to it too,very good this artist has covered every song very well with all the songs that hes covered along with spending time with great outdoor videos...top stuff!...keep em coming! I think my favourites are peasant,sewer and toiler but their all very good. I hope the band bring in on the keyboards someone as good as this guy is.
