Hammersmith: The Return

Hammersmith ApolloThe Decades Apart tour has been a huge success with brilliant audience reactions and increased ticket sales from the last tour.

The set list was career-spanning with a couple of real surprises plus a very welcome return to the fans’ firm favourite Down In The Sewer.

Fans travelled from all over the globe to the UK to attend the gigs, coming from as far as America, Canada and the Far East.

The tour’s penultimate concert found the band back at the Hammersmith Apollo (which most fans still know as the Odeon) for a triumphant sold-out return after nearly 23 years absence.

As we have mentioned previously, the gig was recorded for a DVD release and is available for pre-order through the merchandise site link on the right.

The offer is a DVD and CD package with a strictly limited booklet which will feature the names of all those people who pre-ordered the release. The closing date for pre-orders for this extra special edition is midnight on the 5th of April so don’t hang about…

Site access news

We have been aware that certain fans (particularly those using AOL internet access) have had problems accessing the official site for quite a while. This issue has been caused by compatibility issues between our US ISP, or Internet Service Provider (dating from the original set up in the ‘90s) and various UK ISPs etc. As I’m not too technically minded, I will pass you over (Aural Sculpture style) to web-wizard Dominic who will describe the issue:

Thank you. The Internet Protocol Suite (commonly known as TCP/IP) is the set of communications protocols used for the Internet and the TCP/IP suite uses encapsulation to provide abstraction of protocols and services and such encapsulation usually is aligned with the division of the protocol suite into layers of general functionality so an application (the highest level of the model) uses a set of protocols to send its data down the layers being further encapsulated at each level thus connecting to a website involves the successful interpretation of these packets of information transferred using these protocols and at some point in the process AOL or other ISPs successful interpretation of the domain name and its associated IP address breaks down and packets are not passed along the layers successfully owing to specific configuration rules unique to each ISP resulting in the end-user being unable to see certain said websites. Thank you.

We are now in the process of switching over to a UK ISP so this should hopefully alleviate everyone’s accessing issues. If you have any friends who have had access problems in the past, please let them know that will be resolved and they should be able to visit the site without problems very soon.

To mark the completion of the handover of the Rat’s Lair from Adrian Liggins to ourselves, we have now decided to rename the site ‘S.O.S’ (Stranglers Official Site) with immediate effect.

Thanks to Adrian and Christina for all their hard work and foresight to establish the band’s web-presence back in the ‘90s.

Cheers O&D
