"From the moment he came on stage, taking over the duties from the superb Jim Macaulay, the shouts from the audience were strong and full of love for the man who has given everything in the name of Stranglers."
"“As for live, this band has always been a huge live draw. The one thing we are hesitant about is it becoming a nostalgic, heritage thing, and because we are still recording and releasing new material, that is not the case."

Time is starting to catch up on its members, and a generation who considered JJ Burnel to be “the young one” might be slightly surprised, if not alarmed, to learn that the bass guitarist is now 61. There’s worse to come."
"“Jet’s been rehearsing with us, so hopefully he’ll be at every show,” says Burnel. “There are physical constraints, but he lived the rock’n’roll excess more than most, without doing anything to compensate for it since. This is certainly no farewell tour, anyway.”"
