"Finally it’s on to headline act The Stranglers. Alfie’s stag do are all there, slightly worse for wear. It’s the largest and most animated crowd I’ve seen all weekend. "

12 Aug 2013 The Stranglers at the Proms

Prom 40: 6 Music Prom, FT Laura Marling, Cerys Matthews and others (****)
independent.co.uk
"Always more than three-chord wonders, the once-belligerent punk veterans returned for the gorgeous harpsichord-inflected 'Golden Brown', the black-dressed four-piece and the classical ensemble weaving a bewitching tapestry of obscure time signatures."

"The first Radio 6 Prom collides, with mixed results, the Stranglers and Berio, Laura Marling and Xenakis"

"The Stranglers were as commanding as you’d expect but finale ‘Golden Brown’ felt more messy than it should – a near-perfect pop song that didn’t especially benefit from added depth and complexity and a bit of confusion around time signatures."

Proms 2013: 6 Music Prom, Royal Albert Hall - music review
standard.co.uk
"The first 6 Music Prom saw The Stranglers smothered by London Sinfonietta, but Laura Marling shone through with songs that showed the worlds of pop and classical can do perfectly well without each other"

"We had come full-circle, and The Stranglers were back with a triptych of hit songs. ‘Always the Sun’ and ‘Duchess’ gave the band a chance to settle-in further, Jean-Jacques Burnel’s resonant vocals audience-supported."

"It was just a pity that piling the heavily-amped electric instruments on top of the Sinfonietta’s playing resulted in a somewhat cacophonous sound; the Royal Albert Hall’s acoustic was largely to blame."

"After a sadly lacklustre and broken-voiced support performance by Hugh Cornwell, his old Stranglers songs sounding naked without Dave Greenfield’s swirling keyboard arpeggios"

Caught Live: Cornbury Music Festival

"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, Gig Review. The Citadel, St. Helens.
liverpoolsoundandvision.co.uk
"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."

REVIEW: Hugh Cornwell, The Citadel (St Helens), 6th July 2013
liverpool-live.info
"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."
