A solo show from Hugh when 'Moments of Madness' fell upon Milton Keynes last year. Like its predecessor 'Monster', 'Moments of Madness' is another on form album featuring some strong material. Once again Hugh splits the set with solo/'Nosferatu' material followed by a second set of Stranglers' material. Of the second set, whilst I admire Hugh's willingness to mix it up a bit, I don't think that Waltzinblack particularly works as a live track and 'Turn The Centuries Turn' live is what? Well... a bit of a dirge.
It makes great sense for Hugh I think to keep an eye on what The Stranglers have been playing (if indeed he ever does), what better way to ensure that you can give the Stranglers' section of your audience something that they are not going to hear elsewhere. That said there is a wealth of material that would, I am sure, leave that part of the fanbase happy as Larry... 'Fools Rush Out' or some of those old 'Sculpture' era B-sides that have never had a live airing. But that is a minor criticism really on what is a great show!
Many thanks to Chatts for the share.
