i was rather excited to read that one of my favourite bands, The Stranglers, are still going strong and have a new single out this month, the splendidly titled Retro Rockets.
excitement, however, turned to disappointment, as they have gone the "download only" way with it. for some bizarre reason (probably "copyright" and "publishing") you cannot buy a download track cross-border, even though you can order any CD or single you like and have it shipped anywhere in the world!
i would very much have liked to purchase a copy in support of the admirable campaign to get them into the charts for the fifth decade in a row i cannot. however, if you are in a country where you are allowed to purchase legal downloads you could do a lot worse than click on the link in the title and purchase it for less than 70p!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
