Former Stranglers frontman Hugh Cornwell hit the road last Friday for a series of East Coast dates. The 90 minute set will feature classic solo material, including the acclaimed free to download ‘Hooverdam’ and a collection of Stranglers epic hits. The three piece band features Hugh Cornwell on guitar/vocals, Steve Fishman on bass/vocals and Clem Burke (Blondie) on drums.
Hugh Cornwell is one of the UK’s finest songwriting talents and accomplished live performers – the original guitarist, singer and main songwriter in The Stranglers, he enjoyed massive UK and European success with ten hit albums and twenty one Top Forty singles, etching himself into the UK and Europe’s musical psyche with songs such as ‘Peaches’, ‘No More Heroes’, ‘Golden Brown’, ‘Always the Sun’, ‘Grip’, ‘Nice N Sleazy’, ‘Duchess’ and ‘No Mercy’. One of the biggest hits, ‘Golden Brown’, saw renewed popularity when it was featured in Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster, ‘Snatch’, as did ‘Peaches’ when It was played in its entirety through the opening sequence of ‘Sexy Beast’.
