Hugh Cornwell

I'm a bit late with this one, but it should be of interest to anyone who uses sites like Burning Aquarium. Hugh Cornwell approves of net fans who download music: http://www.pampelmoose.com/2010/03/stranglers-hugh-cornwell-approves-of-music-downloading-offers-free-album.

Here's a link to Hugh's latest release, free to download: www.hooverdamdownload.com/

And here's an interesting screencap:

That's right- available for just £7.90 on i-Tunes, the album that Hugh is, er, giving away for free. Anyway, on his latest tours Hugh has been playing Rattus Norvegicus, The Stranglers debut LP from 1977- here's a recording of it.
