And why not, in celebration of Dave Greenfield and all things good, this really is a live recording of Peter Hammill fronting the Stranglers with extra guitar from Robert Fripp…


Background:  In the spring of 1980, Hugh Cornwell was in Pentonville Prison for drugs possession. With two gigs scheduled at the London Rainbow for 3 April and 4 April, the management decided to turn things around by approaching a number of well-known artists (including John Ellis, Toyah Willcox, Peter Hammill and Hazel O’Connor, among others) to fill in for the absent Cornwell. The Stranglers and Friends: Live in Concert chronicles this event. In 2002, this album was re-released on the Castle Music label with new artwork and sleeve-notes. (Wikipedia)
