13 Mar 2012 The Stranglers in Portsmouth

The Stranglers @ The Pyramids, Portsmouth 13.03.12
"It is hard to believe the band are some 35 years into their career, there is no sign of boredom or fatigue (except for poor Jet Black that is) and the songs sound as defiant as ever."

The Stranglers/The Popes/Mike Marlin
"A shorter but heavier “Walk on By” is a set highlight for me but its difficult to find a low in their set-there are just so many good songs,old and new."

10 Mar 2012 The Stranglers in Birmingham

The Stranglers live review
"Dave Greenfield who’s been the band’s keyboardist since 1975 didn’t drop a note, even in the overwhelmingly long keys solo in ‘Walk On By’ – a truly underrated musician."

The Stranglers / The Popes @ The Academy Birmingham, Saturday 10th March 2012
"Jet Black. Let’s face it, the guy is a legend. Born before World War Two broke out he was diagnosed with a heart condition in 2007 and yet here he is, pounding away on the drums for 90 minutes like a man, well, quarter his age."

Live Review: The Stranglers
"The mostly instrumental ‘Walk On By’ served as the gig’s highlight, with the audience in constant astonishment at Baz Warne’s stunning guitar riffs, which were backed by Dave Greenfield’s raging keyboard arpeggios."

The Stranglers Live Review @ O2 Academy [1, 2 and 3] (Birmingham) - 10 Mar 2012
"When you hear of old acts returning after so long it can understandably make your heart sink, a lot after all never return to be anywhere near the standard they were before but this is one thing that can definitely not be said for The Stranglers."

The Stranglers, O2 Academy, Birmingham
"The secret to The Stranglers longevity it seems, is their versatility and ability to adapt, married with a pure love of what they do."

Hugh Cornwell @ El Corazon (Seattle)

Cornwell and Matlock pack a classic-punk punch
"Hugh Cornwell smiled at the crowd and noted that he was quite pleased with the way he took a few songs and formed them into a Stranglers sandwich to start off his set."
