Hugh Cornwell is one of the UK's finest song-writing talents and accomplished live performers. The original guitarist, singer and main songwriter in The Stranglers enjoyed massive UK and European success with ten hit albums and twenty-one top forty singles, etching himself into the UK's musical psyche with Peaches, No More Heroes, Golden Brown, Always the Sun, Grip, Nice N Sleazy, Duchess, Walk on By, Strange Little Girl and Skin Deep.
Cornwell has released eight solo albums, most recently Hooverdam, produced and mixed in Toerag Studios by Liam Watson, known for the Grammy winning White Stripes' Elephant.
Hooverdam is available as a high-quality free download in twelve languages from his own website, bringing Cornwell's music free to the world's population. It's available as a triple-sleeved digipak featuring both CD and live studio performance DVD Blueprint, in one exclusive package. The album is also issued on vinyl.
With the masterpiece Hooverdam available as a free download, Cornwell breaks new ground and proves himself again to be a unique force in British music.
New Songs for King Kong, a limited edition 'live' double CD and vinyl recorded on the last UK tour, featuring Hooverdam and The Stranglers first album Rattus Norvegicus 1V in their entirety, is available exclusively from Cornwell's website.
"Hooverdam is the cousin to Lou Reed's storming 1988 LP New York. It's a very coherent album with a timeless quality." - Record Collector
"Cornwell remains a hugely popular & prolific performer whose songwriting retains its fiery eloquence and whose gigs still crackle with electricity" - Classic Rock
Blueprint is a live performance of the studio album and features an interview with Cornwell conducted by Robert Elms at Tate Britain.
