I've never seen him solo but I would definately see him do an electric set with a full band. Does anyone know if he is recording some new material?

Yes if he was with John Ellis.

1993 it was Homer @ Junction 7 in Nottingham. Don't think there was that much Mk2 Stranglers stuff in his set though. Remember 'She Gave It All' and possibly 'In A While' was in there. He had a very good live band with him at the time.

A resounding yes from me.There's a lot of tunes out there that I'm unlikely to hear again unless he toured 'em.
And like Jim said,Ellis being there with a decent band behind them would be too good to miss.
I personally think that any fan of the band,except those who didn't follow 'em during the 'wilderness years or who couldn't stand the change for what ever reasons,would go.

Well after Rodder's excellent review from the other night, I'd certainly be interested ... looked like a good setlist to work from. 8)
Somewhere "up north" would be good for me please! :grin:

When I saw him at the 100 Club with John Ellis, it was a great evening's entertainment. Hearing some of those great Mk2 songs again was brilliant. I would definitey go and see him again.

Count me in, The Stranglers, Hugh , Paul and John. That would be a lot of Strangler based gigs. The more the merrier :lol: :lol:
