Glastonbury media coverage

Details of media coverage of the band at Glastonbury are now coming in. They are being interviewed by Tom Robinson on Friday at the festival. This interview will be broadcast later that day on Tom's BBC6 Music show between 6 and 8pm and you can listen here. We are waiting for confirmation of any TV coverage of the band's performance and will post all details as soon as they are available...

Update- The BBC6 Music JJ interview with Tom Robinson can be heard here (starts at 22 mins in). Sadly, it appears that the BBC overlooked the Stranglers' performance for any TV coverage. The band played an hour long hits setlist and went down a storm with the very sizable sun-baked crowd. Spot the familiar logo:

The Stranglers and Ralph Steadman

Vicious cartoonist Ralph Steadman is launching a new musical project in Frome to coincide with a display of his works. The Stranglers have been asked to judge acts in the forthcoming Blot Symphony in mid July but will also be making a brief appearance at the Black Swan Arts Centre in Frome on Thursday lunchtime. Further details can be found here.

Glastonbury stage timesGlastonbury

The band's Glastonbury debut takes place in just over a week on Friday 25th June. They are appearing on the Other Stage at 1.40pm and are scheduled to play an hour long set. At this stage, there are no confirmed details regarding any television coverage. Further details will be posted once they are confirmed.

The Frome warm up at the Cheese & Grain on the 24th is now totally sold out. With the gig in Poland on Saturday 26th as well, it looks to be a busy weekend for the band.

In the run up to last month's gig in Fowey, a presenter called Barry Gribble, from the local community radio station The Source FM, interviewed Baz by phone. The interesting 15 minute interview covers Baz's time with the band and can be heard here.

Thanks to Barry for his kind permission to use this interview on the site.

The Stranglers at the MOJO AwardsJJ

Well, one of them was and sadly not to receive a long overdue award. JJ was asked to attend Thursday night's prestigious event in central London to present an award. Whilst there, he bumped into some old friends. Hot off the press, JJ has blogged on ratter about the evening's events. Hopefully next time, he'll be there receiving an award for the band!!!

EMI to add content to Youtube

The venue for the Athens gig with Billy Idol on 18 June has been changed for a second time due to recent disturbances in the centre of the city. The new venue is the Faliro Pavillion which is an indoor sports arena with a 9000 capacity. Although the venue is located in the suburbs, it is easily reached by public transport. The venue website has access details and tickets are available here
