Feel it live was the last one.
Don't forget "Black and White Live" in 2016 if that counts.

In my collection I have:
Hugh era: Live X Cert, All Live, Saturday Night Sunday Morning, BBC Hammersmith Odeon 81, Apollo Revisited,
Paul era: Access All Areas, Friday the Thirteenth, 5 Live 01, Coast to Coast, (plus Euro Live and On Stage and Screen DVDs)
Baz era: Meninblackinbrugge, Feel It Live, Black and White Live, (plus there are at least three official live DVDs from this era)

Including all the SIS releases and the "Official Fan Club" live album, if anything it's quite Paul-heavy.

That was 2013. There's been two more since then.

'Black And White Live' was 2016.
'Rattus Relived' was 2017 (on vinyl) and 2018 (on CD) (but includes recordings from 2007, 2010, 2014 and 2016).

It was a tongue in cheek comment I made about a ne live album being due ....however if they did one I'd get it ........ there are probably ample of the modern era , pretty much every one has Heroes and bloody Golden Brown on it , so if they did a vastly revised set next year ( say for example, Choosy , Tomorrow , Social Secs ..... even throw in something off Fire & Water , JJ and Dave still there and would make little difference to the other two what is played ) , it would be well worth it if its a fair bit of rare live material ........ I do know none of that will happen , but its just an idea :grin: . We can chuck idea's around on here , you never know , the band might read it and say " hey , lets have a go at that , something different " .
All quiet ..........

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't say things like that . Really puts a bummer on my weekend even thinking of that pile of dross , so I'm not going to et the slightest inkling of a thought of it enter my head . If there's the slightest chance that thing would be played next tour , I wouldn't go , despite whatever else is played ....yes , I hate it that much .

Actually this topic has gone right off topic - all my fault I think . Should post tour stuff on the right thread .

I wouldn't say the production was better on Evil Spirits than Giants. I thought Giants sounded fine.

Giants sounds fine but amateurish. Evil Spirits sounds a load better, and a lot more expensive.
Compare these two reasonably similar moments from both albums:
The guitar break in Mercury Rising, and the guitar break in Look Left.
The jangly bits in Boom Boom, the jangly bits in Sonar Deceit.

The drums in particular sound better on the Damned album. Stranglers might just edge it for the synths though.

Damned album is stronger in my opinion.

Why all the unnecessary hate for this song? The Stranglers have done far worse. :smile:

Yes indeed Mr GreatKudu, getting Mr Visconti in would be a great move, the guy is currently one of the best in what he does, just listen to the Bowie albums, brilliant work, but let’s face it hes always been great at wha he does.
Shame Martin Rushent isn’t with us anymore, I bet he would have produced a cracker, hes so underrated, never gets talked about, which is a bloody shame, that guy new a thing or two about production, his work with The Stranglers was just phenomenal.
