Interesting topic, this. Scary in a way to contemplate what may have happened to a few of them because I think for practically all of us, we have 'the stranglers' in our blood. It was through this forum that I got to meet Yellowcake at Cambridge a few years ago and it was a real thrill to actually meet a fellow member. Maybe in a pure marketing context Jim could do some sort of follow-up? Ties in a bit with the other thread at the moment about how we all got to know about this site. I was one of those who began on Liz's site and can't help wondering what happened to him, too - not just for the site to shut down (funding issues?) but to apparently discontinue any apparent online connection with the band (e.g. through posting on here). Scott.

Got a reply :smt005
Fuck me, if I'm MIA then it must be a bit shit on there!!

Nah, tell them I'll not be back to save the forum until
at least 4 site supporters and 3 registered users beg me, in writing.
And, furthermore, from now on I would also insist that every newbie
must first post a 200 word presentation about their first Stranglers/Hugh gig,
Album or memory, before they even get near the forum.
Tell them, it's either that, or else.... I'll just probably pop back on again when
I get a bit bored.
Thanks for checking I'm still alive though mate, what have I missed?
