Most bands would be dominated by a strong lead singer/guitarist/song-writer but The Stranglers are not most bands. To be fair, the leaving of Hugh Cornwell, lead singer/guitarist extraordinaire knocked all concerned for a loop back in 1990. I'm not conversant enough in either Cornwell's or The Strangler's nineties work to pronounce who came out on top but based on the last two Stranglers' albums and Hugh's recent work (like 2008's Hooverdam) I'd say both camps have gained in strength. (Waaaaaay more Stranglers can be found here!)
Today's offering is a bootleg of some of Mr. Cornwell's radio sessions over the years. And just to remind you that Hugh first went solo (in 1979 with Captain Beefheart's Magic Band's drummer in tow) here's a video from Nosferatu:
What do you make of the Hugh Cornwell Experience? Let us know in the comments?
Speaking of comments, that is the section wherein you will find the Radio Sessions link.
