Ahhhh- The Paul Roberts Band. :?

And now they would have to change to The JJ Burnel Band.
A bit insulting to Jet and Dave.

And no matter what you think of the '92-04 Stranglers, they were closer to proper Strangled territory than perhaps Hugh solo has been.

No, Stranglers was the only way to go, in hindsight, I suppose.

No - it's more Jets - no Off License & ice cream van - no Stranglers.

No - it's more JJ's - he thought of it.

No - it's more Dave's - they were nothing until he joined.

No - it's more Pauls - he's the best singer they ever had.

No - it's Ellis's - he wrote all of the MKII stuff you know, except wot JJ wrote

No - it's Baz's - he can play the Golden Brown solo - piece of piss init.

Didn't Strummer write the "song" "We are the Clash" to wind Mick Jones up after he was given the heave ho?

What's in a name, what's in a sound?

Ellis should have changed his bl**dy guitar.

That new bloke knows what to do.

I thought Ellis was quite creative/inventive. I'm sure he coulda quite easily played songbook Stranglers.

:lol: sadly, no - just tongue in cheek

look at the parallel careers of Bucks Fizz -

"Band name dispute
Shortly after David Van Day left Bucks Fizz, he teamed up with Mike Nolan and two new female recruits to form a new version of Bucks Fizz. Confusion was averted when Nolan agreed to call his band "Bucks Fizz starring Mike Nolan"; their website said the new band was an amalgamation of Bucks Fizz and Dollar (using the slogan "Bucks Fizz plus Dollar equals Lots of Cents"). This version of the band released two singles including a Rick Astley cover [Sheesh!!! we were spared that - is Summer in the City close?] and several compilations which featured new vocal versions of old hits [New versions of old hits - seems familiar]. Particularly noted was a dance remix of Making Your Mind Up released in 1998. [Clubbed to Death]

Sometime thereafter, Nolan left his version of Bucks Fizz but Van Day continued to tour under the moniker "Bucks Fizz". As Heidi Manton, now owner of the name "Bucks Fizz", still continued to play with Bobby G in the official version of Bucks Fizz, much confusion was caused and Bobby G brought a case in the High Court against Van Day. In 2001, a judge refused to grant a court injuction against Van Day as he been operating in "Bucks Fizz" for five years at the time.

The feud and legal battle between Bobby G and David Van Day as to who owned the name "Bucks Fizz" was the subject of a BBC television documentary, Trouble at the Top [2]. The case was settled out of court in 2002 when David Van Day agreed to call his version of the band "David Van Day's Bucks Fizz Show". [Black in Town - getting close]"
