Great gig last night. Many old classics being played (No More Heroes, Grip, Hanging Around, Peaches, Nice & Sleazy), not forgetting the 80's hits, newer songs from latest album "Giants" plus some "rarities", what more could you want?
JJ Burnel once more showing what a "lead bass guitar" is.  :) Band playing with lots of energy.
Some highlights for me: Freedom Is Insane (in fact I told Chrissie before the gig that I'd like to hear this one), Relentless, Nuclear Device, Never To Look Back etc. etc.!  8)

And , Oh Mighty Font of all things Stranglers, I assume Hugh played the slide as Hans was gone by then?

cracking night in Hull yesterday, don't think I have heard Go Buddy Go live before but who knows cant remember its been 40 years after all! The band are really on form and seem to be having great fun. To me the sound was a lot better than Sunday at Preston but it may have been where I was standing. Walk on By, Relentless, Death and Night and Blood + Go Buddy stand outs amongst a great set for me
