The Stranglers '81
"The Raven" tour
For those looking for something lurid (judging by the ratio of image views to gallery views):
it's just the great, multi-genre, multi-decade band from the U.K., The Stranglers... (sorry)

I remember seeing The Stranglers around this time and the band being adamant that they didn't want to see any cameras in the crowd. Early in their set, Hugh Cornwell lept off the stage in mid-song to go into the crowd and beat up the offending bloke who dared capture his image. Boy was I glad I didn't bring my camera to that show. But, yeah, they were great in the 1970s - still love their first two LPs. Thanks for sharing.
One of my fave bands of the 70's & 80's.
Had the good fortune to see them play here in San Diego
sometime during the mid-eighties.
