A Look Back At The Golden Years Of The Stranglers
The Stranglers celebrate their 40th anniversary in September 2014, making this book very timely. It covers the period from the band’s inception until 1990, when Hugh Cornwell quit, which is probably the era most folks best remember.
The Stranglers – Reading Sub89
"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."Sound-Checking with The Stranglers
"Another chapter was added to the book this week when I was invited to meet up with punk legends The Stranglers at their sound-check before the gig in Reading."

Where Is This? No. 51, The Guildford Dragon News
“This week’s mystery vintage photo shows a thatched building that was once a tea room. It was on the outskirts of Guildford, but do you know where? Not really a clue, but a son of the owners is a founder member of, and still plays bass guitar in, the rock band the Stranglers.”
Where Is This? No. 52, The Guildford Dragon News
“A son of the Burnel’s, Jean-Jacques, is better known as the bass guitarist in the band the Stranglers. They were one of the new wave / punk bands of the late 1970s and first made it into the charts with their song Peaches, in the summer of 1977.”
"Playing T in the Park later this month, the group were the highlight for many as they played their hits Golden Brown, No More Heroes, Peaches, Always The Sun and Skin Deep."

"JJ did offer further insight as to what he thought of Clem and guitarist Chris Stein, but I’ll leave that out."
And, never brush your teeth when you’re wearing black jeans
"“Clem (Burke) always tried to avoid me. He knew what I thought of him. Debbie (Harry) said to Baz (Warne, The Stranglers vocalist) in the bar at our hotel, “I think JJ’s having a go at my drummer!”"
Whatever happened to live albums?
"Likewise, the Stranglers live releases are full of Hugh Cornwell’s sarcastic between-song banter."
