The Stranglers 10 (VINYL LP)



by The Stranglers

10 is the tenth studio album from “The Stranglers” and was the last to feature guitarist/lead singer Hugh Cronwell. The album was released in 1990. ’10’ peaked at No. 15 and spent four weeks in the UK Albums Chart.

There was a Big Band sound to this album, possibly due to the production work of Roy Thomas Baker and the continued use of a horn section. One of the highlights was the cover version of Question Mark & The Mysterians hit ‘96 Tears’(which reached No. 17 in the UK Singles Chart)

The album sleeve shows the members of the band dressed up as ten of the most notable world leaders of the time ( Yasser Arafat, Rajiv Gandhi, Pope John Paul 11, Mikhail Gorbachev, Margret Thatcher, George H.W. Bush, Fidel Castro, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Benazir Bhutto and Joshua Nkomo.)
