The Final Full UK Tour

The Stranglers

The Stranglers appearing at this event

Seventies punk icons whose rat-infested songs plagued both the album and singles charts through the subsequent decade. Their compounded musical talents and enthusiasm, infused with large doses of charisma and dark notoriety goes more than a little way to explaining why The Stranglers have survived the vagaries of the music business. These days The Stranglers have at their core original members Jean-Jacques Burnel (bass), Jet Black (drums) and Baz Warne (guitar), with the lead vocals shared between Warne and Burnel (Burnel singing the songs he originally recorded as lead vocalist, and Warne performing the numbers originally sang by Hugh Cornwell). Keyboardist Dave Greenfield died in May 2020 at the age of 71.

Ruts DC

Ruts DC appearing at this event

The Ruts DC were formed in 1981 by the rhythm section and guitarist of The Ruts. The Ruts had had three whirlwind years of success and much critical acclaim - excellent releases included the singles "Babylons Burning" ,"Jah War"," Something That I Said" and "Staring At The Rude Boys" and the albums "The Crack", "Grin And Bear It" and "Animal Now'. The late great John Peel at Radio 1 strongly supported the band's debut single "In A Rut", which was released on the label 'People Unite' by reggae band Misty In Roots, as they shared the common fight against racism and the National Front. They were later invited to play live for him, and their 1979 "Peel Sessions" set was eventually released as a 12-inch in 1986. The band continue to tour extensively and record, with 2016 album "Music Must Destroy" being voted 'Album of the Year' by Vive Le Rock magazine.
