Wolf is a great record - it's full of some truly beautiful, well-written songs and has some wonderful vocal performances from Hugh. The only flaw with it is that it sounds like a record made in the late '80s... but what record doesn't sound like period in which it was recorded, unless it's deliberately parodying another decade a la The Dukes of Stratosphear? I'd gladly take Wolf over any post-Hugh Stranglers record.
Dukes of Stratosphear sounds totally like an 80s\90s take on the 60s!
And bloody good it is too!
Thank you very much

Who's the other one? Thought there was a few of them to be fair.

Also, who are the sensitive six?

The sensitive 6!

You started that James, think Crass & Organ Grinder were two....oh, those were the days!

As for the Cornwell Camp, it seems like the likes of Don & Tracy etc are long gone but at least you, Stan and Raveninblack are still treading the boards. Fair play to y'all.

:lol:

Who would have thought? Nostalgic about the days gone by on this forum. Maybe there should be an anniversary tour of threads from years ago :idea:

If The Stranglers can milk the past so can we.

I voted for HI Fi but ment to vote for Guilty.
Guilty is by far his best solo album, its very very good.
Long dead train is one of his best songs, the album was a real return to form nd the live shows at the time was great.
I was expecting a lot more stuff like this from Hugh at the time.

Also i have a soft spot for Wolf love the track Decadence.
I remember having trouble getting the CD single Another kind of love at the time.
Had to fo to reddingtons rare records who had to oder the CD single, The 12 inch and 7 inch was easy to get.
Those was the days going into town to get the records..were do the years go.

I also think Guilty is his best album. Totem was pretty good too.

I think all of his "proper" solo albums are brilliant

(I don't count 'Footprints In The Desert' as a "proper" album, more a curio)
