Live Review: The Stranglers @ O2 Academy, Sheffield
"A lot of the older audience said this is the closest us young ‘uns will get to a gig from the 70’s and 80’s, and I truly believe them."
The Stranglers @ O2 Academy, Sheffield, 23.3.12
"I have to admit, in comparison with their previous performances, I felt that the long tour had taken its toll not only on Jet Black but on the rest of the band. They did not seem to have the same energy as usual."
Review : The Stranglers @ Sheffield Academy
"It’s no mean feat when a band manages to span a total of five decades. But that’s exactly what punk’s bad boy veterans The Stranglers have now done"

The Stranglers - Giants
"In fact a quick look at chart positions shows that Suite XVI hit higher than Norfolk Coast and similarly Giants has charted higher that Suite XVI. This is in no way a band on a downward slide."
Interview: Baz Warne from The Stranglers
"“It’s just one of those little Stranglers quirks. I don’t think we’ll be doing it in the set – now that would be interesting! A room full of Stranglers fans doing the tango – hmm, probably not!”"
True legends The Stranglers still going strong after 40 years
"By the time they returned for an encore, they were in full flow and belted out Duchess and All Day & All Of The Night to remind us of just two more reasons why they have become true legends over the past (count them) 40 years."
