9780007193257: A Multitude of Sins: Golden Brown, The Stranglers and Strange Little Girls: The Autobiography

A leading figure of the punk era, Hugh was lead singer, guitarist, and main songwriter with The Stranglers, and now brings his unique style, humor, and insight to describe the story of his life. Beginning with Hugh's decision to leave The Stranglers in 1990, the book explores, in full and frank detail, why this key moment in UK music history has never been fully explained. The book also covers the heady days of early punk in London, described by someone who was at its epicenter, right there with the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and the Damned. The life and times of one of the most notorious and gifted rock groups of the 1970s and 1980s, are described in detail, including the drug busts, fights, prison terms and—in one case—the tying up of journalists. Throughout this time Hugh encountered a host of other extraordinary people—Malcolm McClaren, Joe Strummer, Kate Bush, and Debbie Harry, to name a few, and he recounts the outrageous times he lived through with them, as well as providing an inside take on the other members of The Stranglers.
