40th anniversary of 1977 - part 1

1977 was a huge year for the band and 2017 marks the fortieth anniversary of that ground-breaking year. It was the year that they went from a relatively unkown ‘Punk’ band from Guildford to a top ten charting, household name. In this chronological diary, we chart what the band were doing forty years ago in the corresponding week back in ’77. This first article details January to end of June 1977, a period in which the band released both their debut single and album and went from being a support act at the Roundhouse to packing out gigs there themselves. So, we now whisk you back to 1977, and the heyday of the Punk explosion, for the start of that legendary year…

Jean-Luke Epstein (1952-2017)

We were saddened to hear the news of the sudden passing of Jean-Luke at the end of last week. ‘JL’ was a long-term fan and ally of the band and was best known in Stranglers’ circles for his eye-catching and inspired designs for their record sleeves during their Epic years.

We asked his friend and Graphyk colleague Grant Louden to provide a few words about him:

May West festival cancelled

We have just received this from the band’s management:

The promoters of the forthcoming debut May West event at Glasgow Green have informed us of the decision to cancel the show on Saturday 27th May.

They have unfortunately encountered some issues with the location of the show and circumstances beyond their control which has led to them not being able to proceed further with the event. They have tried to secure alternative locations within the city but lack of time has now not made it possible to move the show.

Refunds will be available from point of purchase and both the promoter and the band apologise for any inconvenience caused by this late cancellation.

Apologies to any fans planning to travel to this gig…
