CQAF: The Stranglers – Festival Marquee, Belfast

ts1 ts2 ts3 ts4 ts5 ts6 ts7 ts8 ts9The Stranglers are revered as one of the most exciting, credible and influential bands to have come out of the UK, as essential today as at any time in their lengthy career.

One of the great stories from the punk generation, with their own highly original sound that combines a brilliant melodic touch with genuine dark aggression and an effortless cool. Their continued run of album successes has marked a long, controversial and pioneering career.

They continue to deliver an impressive and enrapturing live show after performing at Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival on Friday 1st May. Our photographer Bernie McAllister captured the night in photo.
