Rockonteurs with Gary Kemp and Guy Pratt

11-09-2021 • 1 hr 5 mins

This week on Rockonteurs, Guy and Gary chat to musician, producer, bassist (obviously) and founding member of The Stranglers, JJ Burnel!

It’s a fascinating chat that takes us from ice-cream vans in Surrey to punk pubs in London. We discuss the massive success of the band with hits like Peaches, Golden Brown and No More Heroes through to the new album Dark Matters (out now) and the recent passing of Dave Greenfield who died from Covid in 2020 but who is very much part of this new record. Stories of fights with Sex Pistols, gigs with The Ramones and naked centrefolds, this episode has it all.
