"A mix of doo-wop and modern covers earned Boy(ish) band The Overtones a great reception, while other stand-outs included the rockabilly of Imelda May, Echo & The Bunnymen, Osibisa (Sunshine Day indeed), a strutting set from Wilko Johnson and punk memories from Hugh Cornwell."

Hugh Cornwell (The Stranglers) Interview at Cornbury Festival 2013
"The Stranglers, Cerys Matthews and Laura Marling appear with the London Sinfonietta (live on Radio 3 and 6 Music) in a celebration of contemporary music from punk to experimental composers Edgard Varèse and Luciano Berio."
"Hugh Cornwell is one of those musicians that people will seemingly travel thousands of miles to see, such is the sense of history that surrounds him and the music that he has created in a rich and varied career."
"His musings on various subject matters that he sings on stage are always worth listening to as well and on a balmy summer’s evening in St. Helens, that musical grace he brings with him was evident once more."
HUGH CORNWELL of The Stranglers "Skin Deep" Live in St Helens 2013
"... the bass work of Jean-Jacques "JJ" Burnel stood out from the outset, especially on what critics claim to be the best track on the album, "Nice N' Sleazy". It's high in the mix, funky as hell and attracts me like a moth to a torch."
