Hugh Cornwell, the original guitarist, singer and main songwriter in The Stranglers, enjoyed massive success with ten hit albums and twenty-one top forty singles in the 17-year period that he was in the band.

The Stranglers etched themselves into the nation's musical psyche with many hit singles, including Peaches, No More Heroes and Golden Brown. Cornwell quit the group by stepping off the stage at a Stranglers’ sold out gig at Alexandra Palace in the summer of 1990 after announcing that it was the last time he would be fronting the group.

Since then, Hugh has released five studio albums, Nosferatu (1979), Wolf (1988), Wired (1993), Guilty (1997), Hi-fi (2001) and Beyond Elysian Fields (2004). In response to public demand he has also released Mayday, a full live band set; and In the Dock, a solo acoustic album, featuring many Stranglers’ classics. The catalogue is completed by the release of Footprints in the Desert, a compilation of rare and unreleased tracks from the last ten years.

Hugh’s book The Stranglers: Song By Song was published in November 2001 and gained massive media coverage. In the book he sets the record straight, displaces the myths and explains for the first time the real stories behind the Stranglers’ extensive catalogue of songs.

Hugh joins us on Friday 28th July at 4:30pm to talk about his new album, Dirty Dozen. The live album will feature tracks from Hugh’s solo career as well as a collection of Stranglers' classics. Recorded during his residency at Islington Academy in 2005, ‘Dirty Dozen’ is a 'highlights' album culled from the triple live album ‘People; Places; Pieces'.
