THE WORLD’S number one tribute to The Stranglers will take to the stage at Huntingdon Hall next Saturday.
Straighten Out is the premier Stranglers tribute band out there.
With an extensive set-list that spans two solid hours, they re-create the ‘early years’ sound of The Stranglers, complete with a keyboard rig that is the same model as the original used by Mr Greenfield himself in the 1970s.
The growling bass sound and quirky guitar riffs are all there to be heard, as is the dual vocal ‘attack’ from the two frontmen, a la Burnel-Cornwell, as they rip through all the classics: Peaches, Hanging Around, No More Heroes, 5 Minutes, The Raven, Walk On By, Straighten Out, Down In The Sewer and many more.
Straighten Out – live and unleashed – will transport you back to those raw, powerful, exhilarating times when The Stranglers emerged through the quagmire of mediocrity to produce some of the finest tunes ever written.
The show kicks off at 7.30pm, tickets are £16 and available through the Worcester Live Box Office on 01905 611427.
