"Tonight in Manchester it’s a sold out Academy gig, an audience of 2600 eagerly awaiting to see a band most of them will have seen over 30 years prior. As a younger music fan, it makes me question as to which bands will still be around in 30 year ..."
The Stranglers - The Raven @ Manchester Academy 21/3/2015
"‘Oh Fuck’ came the line at the end of the phone. You see at some point last week I made the mistake of calling home and mentioning to my Dad that I was off to see The Stranglers on Friday night. He had reason to be fearful."
The Stranglers - Peaches - Cambridge Corn Exchange 20/3/15
"Classic rat walking 'n' stalking from Baz and JJ during Down In The Sewer, the chant for founding member Jet Black who talk to the stage halfway through and the goosebumps as the crowd sing the final "God forbid" during Duchess."
"Hugh then introduces a very special guest the Lithuanian (from Epsom) youtube artist Seethelittlenuclei (well known for her Stranglers covers) to duet with him for Souls. A brilliant moment, inspired and touching!"
Souls - Live performance with Hugh Cornwell @ The Electric Ballroom, Camden (2014 December 4)
"With a mix of old and new, I think what made Hugh such a personable experience is that it almost felt as if it wasn’t a concert at all – more of a jam session. It didn’t feel like it was pre-planned or to a set list – it just felt like musicians doing what they do best."
"What I would really miss is Jean Jacques Burnel’s bass lines and presence and Dave Greenfield’s unique keyboard playing but thankfully they are still very present. It just wouldn’t be The Stranglers without these two."
