The 'Nosferatu' collaboration was launched in November with a promotional campaign equal in intensity to previous Stranglers albums. Multiple full page ads were featured in each of the main UK weekly music papers (at great cost).
Each ad featured very atmospheric shots of Hugh with elements of Victorian horror thrown in. The shaving shots were vampire specific in that the reflection of a vampire in a shaving mirror would be somewhat problematic!
This campaign would have indeed set back United Artists a pretty penny. A lavish campaign was also enjoyed by JJ for the 'Freddie Laker' and 'Euroman Coming' release. Whether this was due to their continued belief in The Stranglers or an insurance policy against the much mooted band split, I leave to you.
