Blondie go Atomic at Kew The Music festival
"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."

The flag-waving finale, the majesty of the Albert Hall, Wagner versus...the Stranglers? The Proms just got weirder and better
"The Stranglers, Cerys Matthews and Laura Marling appear with the London Sinfonietta (live on Radio 3 and 6 Music) in a celebration of contemporary music from punk to experimental composers Edgard Varèse and Luciano Berio."
Hugh Cornwell, Gig Review. The Citadel, St. Helens.
"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
"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."

Dick Dank Challenge #1: Doesn't Matter if the Stranglers are Black and White
"... the bass work of Jean-Jacques "JJ" Burnel stood out from the outset, especially on what critics claim to be the best track on the album, "Nice N' Sleazy". It's high in the mix, funky as hell and attracts me like a moth to a torch."
Hugh Cornwell – Totem and Taboo
"Here for all intents and purposes is an established artist on a creative high, and as fresh in outlook as in those ’70s and ’80s heydays. And while the voice brings Lou Reed to mind at key points, there are parallels with David Bowie’s 2013 successful return The Next Day and its own self-titled intro."
