The Stranglers march on tour
"Jet Black is actually two years younger than my dad so it’s like I’m performing with my dad every night on stage"
JJ Burnel is guest on Steve Lamacq’s Roundtable, BBC 6 Music
The Stranglers 'March On'
"“We must be on something. the last three albums ‘Norfolk Coast’, ‘Suite XVI’ and ‘Giants’ have changed everything for The Stranglers, worldwide."
Interview: The Stranglers
"Well, first of all, on The Gospel according to Meninblack I think JJ Burnel would happily get down on his knees and kiss your feet for saying that. It’s his favourite album, very underrated."
An interview with The Stranglers
"I mean the album in 1998 was a real hotchpotch, there were arguments in the band and one of the guys took control of the album and made a real pig’s ear out of it."
The Stranglers are still rocking after all these years ...
"“But my take is that when Jet is completely out of the band we would finish, but Jet himself would like it to continue. As I said, he’s mentoring Jim and is trying to convince me to carry on.” “I remain to be persuaded though.”"
Stranglers : Interview with JJ Burnel
"Few bands can boast such a long and successful as the Stranglers. Fewer still can match such a colourful career as the band that started life on the Guildford pub-rock circuit in the mid-70s..."
Baz Warne of The Stranglers talks to NE:MM ahead of the band’s O2 Academy, Newcastle gig on 12th march 2015
"I mean if the 80s was a bit synthier and a bit poppier, we can do that, we can go to the growly stuff of the 70s and the new material that we’ve been writing and releasing over the last 10 to 15 years is rockier as well so…It does kick arse, it really does kick arse!"
Interview: JJ Burnel talks about The Stranglers upcoming tour & past/ present relationships within the band.
"No. And he’s done some rather underhand things in the last few years which kind of seals our estrangement really. I really don’t understand where he’s at these days and when I hear about with some of the things he’s done, it leaves me rather underwhelmed."
