“Down In the Sewer” (by Hugh Cornwell)
Diane is ecstatic to welcome the legendary Hugh Cornwell to the Fun Machine. Front man for the Stranglers for years, he's currently touring with his all star band featuring drummer Clem Burke (Blondie, Romantics) and bassist Steve Fishman (James White and the Blacks). They'll be playing a few live numbers in the studio and then Diane will speak about music with the punk icon! His latest release is a double CD called "New Songs for King Kong," on the Invisible Hands Music label. On this tour, Hugh played 2 sets -- a mix of his solo work and Stranglers songs, followed by a performance of "Rattus Norvegicus IV", the Stranglers first album in its entirety.
Engineer: Ben Burger, Techs: Ricky Joseph, David Mambach
