Hugh Cornwell Interview
"I’m half way through the next book and have done an album of quite obscure cover versions which is nearly finished. I’ve also just finished a version of MacArthur Park with John Cooper Clarke which he actually sings on and does so brilliantly."
Hugh and no taboo!
"I still think his Stranglers days will continue to dominate though as he has a live CD playing the full No More Heroes album but only available at his solo gigs and of course he encored the evening with Hazel O’Connor to reprise Hanging Around."
"The thumping Stuck in Daily Mail Land blended Campbell’s driving bass with amazing percussion from Chris Bell. Cornwell’s voice smooth but always able to go up a notch, he commented on the undeniably subdued audience, before hammering into Dagenham Dave."
