"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”."
"There being no new Stranglers album to promote, not even an addition to their extensive range of archive live performances, theirs was basically a greatest hits show, but with hits like these who’s complaining?"
