Hugh Cornwell: Stranglers Hits & Solo Classics Live

The original singer, songwriter, and guitarist for the British rock band The Stranglers, Hugh Cornwell has established a loyal following of fans. As the main songwriter of the band’s biggest hits across ten albums, Cornwell’s songs continue to be enjoyed by punk rock enthusiasts worldwide. 

In anticipation of Cornwell’s return to the Australian stage later this year, join us as we explore some of the most memorable hits from Cornwell’s impressive career.

Hugh Cornwell’s Iconic Hits

Rediscover Stranglers Classics

With a career spanning five decades, there’s no shortage of Stranglers’ hits to choose from. Their 1977 single ‘Peaches’, became a hit with fans thanks to its distinctive bassline, reaching No.8 on the UK Singles Chart. 

Of course, we also have to mention their 1982 single ‘Golden Brown’, which reached No.2 on the UK Singles Chart in February and impressed fans with its unique use of the harpsichord. 

Experience Hugh Cornwell’s Solo Gems

In addition to The Stranglers’ hits, Cornwell gifted us with some truly memorable solo songs. Cornwell collaborated with drummer Robert Wiliams on his 1979 album ‘Nosferatu’, his first album away from the group, which was inspired by the 1922 silent film of the same name.

Nosferatu. 1988 marked the release of his first solo studio album, ‘Wolf’, with its single ‘Another Kind of Love’ reaching No.11 on the US Alternative Charts. Its accompanying music video was directed by the accomplished surrealist filmmaker Jan Švankmajer and was described by the LA Times as a ‘fun song and a visual treat’. 

Live Performance of Timeless Classics

Throughout the late 90s and 2000s, Hugh Cornwell wowed fans with his live albums, including ‘Mayday’ (1999), ‘Solo’ (1999), and ‘People, Places, Pieces’ (2006). ‘Mayday’ consisted entirely of Cornwell’s solo tracks recorded after leaving The Stranglers, while ‘Solo’ included solo tracks and classics from his time with The Stranglers. ‘People, Places, Pieces’ contained 45 tracks, spanning the entirety of Cornwell’s career, including both Stranglers’ hits and his solo works.
