"Chatting to the original bass thing from the band Jean Jacques Brunel, it is made abundantly clear in strident tones that he has not shared a stage with his former partner in crime and has no intentions to do so, despite the money that is apparently around for such a reunion."
"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."
