Hugh Cornwell has sent over his latest video for us to run as an exclusive!!! The video can only be watched on Louder Than War so make sure all your friends head over here for a gander! The video is for the track ‘God Is A Woman’ which has been lifted from Hugh’s current album ‘Totem And Taboo’.
Hugh sent it over to us himself with the following words about the track:
“Probably my favourite track on the album…first few notes may remind some people of ‘Badge’, but I think this is an improvement. The voice is unusually very dry and in your ear, in contrast to the bass and guitar. Hopefully people will consider, as I do, that this is a modern day ‘Peaches’
‘Totem And Taboo’ was initially self-released in June 2012 via Pledge Music, before being coming out via The Cadiz Recording Co. back in September 2012 to widespread critical acclaim. The album was then released via Red River Entertainment in North America on June 25 2013. Louder Than War’s Mark Ray reviewed it back in June 2012 & said:
“With ‘God Is A Woman’ I wonder if Cornwell is finally burying the charge of sexism that always lingered around The Stranglers like the smell of rohypnol”.
Totem & Taboo can be bought in several different formats (and combinations therein) from Hugh’s Bandcamp page HERE. You can, of course, also listen to the album in full there too or use the widget at the foot of the page (below the tour dates) to do so.
Please be aware the video clip contains images of full frontal nudity.
