12 Aug 2013 The Stranglers at the Proms

Prom 40: 6 Music Prom, FT Laura Marling, Cerys Matthews and others (****)
"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."

"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."

"JJ Burnel is a major force, a huge driver of both the band's sound and success. He's also had quite a reputation for kicking back against the press, sometimes physically."
