Stranglers live review: ‘Still so much raw energy and power’
"For men in their 50’s and 60’s, ageing punk standard-bearers The Stranglers swagger out in front of a packed o2 Academy crowd with just enough bravado to further raise the hopes of every member of the audience."Live: The Stranglers, O2 Academy, Leeds, 17/3/15.
"There are far too many highlights to go through them all but the opening of salvo of Lonships, The Raven, Straighten Out and Grip were a fantastic mixture of power and melody, and were viscerally exciting. Hearing Four Horsemen, Nice in Nice and Curfew for the first time in years was great and I was so happy that they played the amazing Baroque Bordello."THE STRANGLERS, Leeds O2 Academy
"The Stranglers never disappoint, but I seriously think this is the best performance I have seen from them yet. That is saying a lot about one of the UK’s best live bands. They are, without question, at the pinnacle of their game."

The Stranglers Birmingham 02 Academy 14th March 2015 Review by Nell Ashley
"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."
