Baz Warne blogs for Blighty!

Hello people…and welcome to 2010!

These blogs will be a regular feature of the new look site and I’ve been asked by the team to write the 1st one…an honour indeed!

So first off a big thanks to Owen and the squad for their efforts in making the site so pleasing on the eye and brain…cheers…and also thanks to Ade and Christina Liggins for all their efforts and friendship over the years…good luck guys…

Well, here we are again at the start of what hopefully will be another good year for us all…the March tour is shaping up nicely and we’re looking forward to getting out and seeing you lot again, my favourite part of the machine…

Thanks for all your feedback on the new song Retro Rockets too…written during a 2 month stint in Bath and 1 of about 8 songs written during that time…hopefully we can get some more out in the not too distant future to titillate you all with…

The Greek dates were great and it was nice to see some Brits taking the trouble to travel…always amazes me to see the effort put in to see us abroad and it’s always appreciated…there was an earthquake while we were there too…5.2 on the Richter…enough to make the earth move…would like to say we caused it but apparently the plates moved somewhere out under the Aegean Sea…

I was in a basement bar and didn’t feel it but the crew tell me it was pretty impressive…maybe next time…

We’re in rehearsals for the tour at the moment too, so as always expect the unexpected…the black jukebox is being dusted down as we speak…

I’m off to see my beloved Sunderland play tonight so I thought I’d write this today before I get too suicidal to do it in the week…!

Look forward to seeing you all soon…keep smiling if you can…

  15. Awesome Baz, greetings from Sweden(or Sverige perhaps?) Seems we both have great taste in football but I wasn't born i Sunderland like you. I'm a swede to the bone but when it comes to football Sunderland is my team for life. Love the club and the fans!

    Sunderland are playing tonight and I will be seated at home since the away game against Portsmouth is showing at my cable tv.
    I reckon it's gonna be a tough one but we'll hang in there and at least get a point out of it.

  22. 33 years later and the lads are still making great powerful music. I have followed them since 1977 and will do so until the day I die.The Stranglers constantly refresh and never sound stale. Then again, The Stranglers, from the words of a wise prophet who once said "The Stranglers are aural artists who create musical sculptures"
