"The Stranglers are mixing it up. Not, as in the past, by tying up journalists and encouraging female acquaintances to take to the stage naked. No, the 2019 incarnation is nightly mixing up the set with tracks both revered and unrecorded."
"The first of tonight’s new tracks, ‘Last Man On The Moon’, has a retro sci-fi vibe with swirling organ and twanging surf-style guitar. The lyrics give the impression of a dystopian future where mankind has trashed other worlds as well as this one."
Relentless-The Stranglers@Brighton Dome 26th March 2019
"In there 45th Year now, and with a New Album later in the year, Down with the Lights and the eerie signature tune of Waltzinblack whipped the crowd into anticipation, The Roar began as The Meninblack walked onto the Stage And umphh straight into a blistering version of Tank, Got the crowd onside straight away"
"The early stuff of The Who used the backing voices as another instrument. If you listen to the old Who stuff it is very clever, the arrangements of the backing vocals. It is an added instrument. It’s a technique I use when I play the Stranglers stuff”."
