Product description

Product Description

" This was the last song I wrote for the album, says Cornwell about the title track Totem And Taboo. It s become one of my favourites. A hint of Rebel Rebel with some Marc Bolan glam thrown in. I ve always liked songs with marching 4 s on the snare, and that s what it is supposed to be, a rallying call for like-minded souls.

Cornwell was the original guitarist, singer, and main songwriter of the British punk rock band The Stranglers. He s enjoyed massive UK and European success with 10 hit albums and 21 Top Forty hit singles including Peaches, No More Heroes, Golden Brown, Always the Sun, (Get A) Grip (On Yourself), Nice N Sleazy, Duchess and No Mercy.

A nationwide October UK tour will see Cornwell perform the Totem And Taboo album in its entirety, followed by The Stranglers seminal 1977 album No More Heroes, also performed in its entirety."

Review

Thanks to a gloriously raw and vibrant sound, courtesy of the ever-reliable Steve Albini, Cornwell's endearingly sardonic observations on freedom, comsumerism and Madonna Louise Ciccone crackle with energy...he sounds more engaged and intense than he has in years. It ends with the menacing sprawl of In The Dead Of Night, Cornwell's finest and most unashamedly epic moment since the punk era. --Dom Lawson, Classic Rock, September 2012

Cornwell...continues to produce compelling, individual work. Totem and Taboo (the title references a collection of essays by Sigmund Freud) was produced by Steve Albini, who has worked with everyone from Nirvana to The Stooges, and the result, over these 10 songs, is a record that has some of the propulsive, gritty energy of early Stranglers, driven by Chris Bell's drumming and Steve Fishman's driving bass work. --Russell Leadbetter, The Herald, September 5th 2012
