Best moment from the current line up.

Post by Alexinblack » 01 Jun 2013, 21:26

The last seven years has seen some great Stranglers moments, Rattus at the Roundhouse, the band finally playing at Glastonbury after all those years. The convention in 2011 was a great weekend, the band covering songs for all of the different eras.

Whats yours been?

Doesn't Suite count _ I know Paul probably has involvement BUT also I think none of his songs were on the album , but maybe he has input in the album - if that were not the case I'd say Suite . Of the list - Rattus at Roundhouse . Certainly NOT Giants though , unfortunately . Maybe B&W live too /convention , which I've only seen on the DVD . Maybe its a bit too early to pick defining monents for this version of the band on the basis of one or possibly two albums .
All quiet ..........

Not including 'Suite XVI' in here is a touch pedantic, really, it's MKIV's debut and the option I would have voted for.

Suite XIV was an ok album but could have been much better - too much filler but it should have been mentioned in the vote list here too. I voted for the convention for the B&W set

the gig at keele university, first time seeing the the band back as a 4 piece, unfortunately i was not a fan of paul, and was glad to see the back of him, my own opinion, and respect others.
If it's not recorded ,then it's just a memory

Having seen quite a bit of the Glasto set on Youtube as I was not there I have to say it was well in your face but for me Suite XVI put the Stranglers firmly back on the Map and is my Current Line Up Moment. I have come away from many shows these last few years as well with a warm glow but I think that's an age thing. Will I be allowed in the Bowls Club in my March On 2015 Tee Shirt. We shall see. Oh yeah Jet on Breakfast BBC a few weeks ago was pure magic as well. :smt120

Having given the band away during the 90's, the first opportunity I had to see the new line up in Aus was in 2009 at The Roundhouse in Sydney, just the name of the venue was enough to motivate me to go. Confirmation that I'd experienced an epiphany came the second the lights went down and was reinforced as we were leaving when my missus (who was previously not a fan), said " That was fucking awesome". Nuff said.
I'll see you in the sewer!!!

I'll put it this way, when 'Coup De Grace' was The Stranglers most recent album, the thought of them playing Glastonbury would have been laughable to me. That they pulled it back enough to put out some great records and play Glastonbury is amazing to me, so that.

In the days before I was on the Net and Strangled was long gone, I turned up not knowing Paul had left.

I was blown away at seeing what looked like The Stranglers again.
