The podcast edit for our 3/2/12 Revenge of the 80s Radio show is up and available at the bottom of this post. This week, Hugh Cornwell is our guest. The original Strangler is currently touring parts of the U.S. and Canada with original Sex Pistol Glen Matlock and will release a new album, Totem and Taboo, later this year. Our conversation leads off the second hour of the show.
During our interview, Cornwell and I discuss:
- The Heavyweights of Rock tour with Glen Matlock
- The beginnings of The Stranglers
- Hugh’s many solo projects
- His 2008 album, Hooverdam
- Plans for more live shows around the world this year and the coming Totem and Taboo album.
We also play classics by Captain Sensible, The Flirts, The Alarm, Mental As Anything, Stan Ridgway and more.
