Duchess - My Life Story

Suddenly remembering what a great song "Strumpet" is.

Can't remember...........did that ever get to court? Duchess was at least 740% better than the Manics track though. I couldn't see the problem?

There was a thread listing pretty much every Stranglers' track that had been covered, on the boards, a while back. Fecked if I can find it though. :twisted:

Can you give us the forum link mate.......only the 'search' button ain't working............................ :twisted:

That Presidents of America album should go in the 'albums you bought and you wished you feckin hadn't just because the single was quite good and you thought the album might be equally listenable' thread by the way.

The origininal 'Peaches' cover by Hard-Fi was quite good though, IMHO...............
