Re: The Stranglers
Jet on drums and Greenfield s genius on the keyboard were the bands excellence.
Hugh couldnt sing a note..but suited the punk style.

Burnell was just a cool fucker..so gets a pass.

Great band back in the day..end of

Re: The Stranglers
Goodness only knows how they are doing today. They made lots of very good records and I still have a Best Of on my iPad. I get bored if I try to listen to the whole album but some of their tracks were truly excellent.

Re: The Stranglers
I saw them loads of times, some of the best were at the Red Cow, Hope & Anchor and the Nashville Rooms but also saw them in '76 at the Roundhouse and next night at Dingwalls with Flamin' Groovies and the Ramones. In late '77 i saw them at the Roundhouse with support from Handsome Dick Manitoba & the Dictators then at the Southend Kursaal. By then they were a bit shit and appealed more to old hippies. I remember The Vibrators and another night The Jam blowing them off stage at, i think, Hornsey college or Brunel or LSE?

Re: The Stranglers
watched them several years ago with Hugh, decidedly average...

Likewise I went to see Dinosaur Jr on Thursday - they were boring and left me with tinnitus for 3 days..

Re: The Stranglers
saw them at The Roundhouse in 1976 when they did 4 or 5 nights in a row- fucking immense- the support band was a fucking awful merican band called the dictators with a ,lead singer looking life jeff Lynne- his fuzzy hair was covered in spit then he got a bottle across his nose! Crazy days

Saw them in shepherds bush five years ago- the sound is ok but they are a long way away from what they were IMHO

Re: The Stranglers

Stranglers very average without Hugh up front.

Re: The Stranglers
Saw these in about 76/77 at The Malvern Winter Gardens.
Dave Greenfield having a pint at the bar before the gig signed my ticket for me,
So tightly packed in that the ticket disintegrated to mush in my pocket soaked in my sweat and that of the person literally lying over my back.
Superb band. Enjoy them!
