Hugh Cornwell returns to the road to coincide with his sensational and highly anticipated tenth solo album Moments of Madness.
When future historians of music draw up a list of the movers and shakers who changed the modern musical landscape, there will be no doubt that Hugh Cornwell’s name will be prominent amongst them.
As leader of The Stranglers, Hugh was the main songwriter of all the band’s most memorable songs across ten stellar albums. His lyrics to Golden Brown, from the La Folie album, and their multiple meanings, is a songwriting masterclass with the song reaching number 2 in the UK singles charts.
After releasing his final album 10 with The Stranglers Hugh embarked on a solo career. He is now releasing his 10th solo album Moments of Madness, an album of acute, pithy, and witty observations and social commentary across ten singular songs, that confirms Hugh as the poet laureate of the punk era and beyond.
