Hugh Cornwell to play Leamington

Singer adds The Primitives to UK tour.

Legendary new wave frontman Hugh Cornwell, best known as the writer of Golden Brown, Strange Little Girl, No More Heroes and many more anthems from his time with the Stranglers, will be touring the UK in the new year.

As leader of the Stranglers, Hugh was the main songwriter of all the band’s most memorable songs across ten stellar albums and has since then embarked on a stellar solo career. In 2022 Hugh’s latest album Moments of Madness was an album of acute, pithy, and witty observations which has received widespread critical acclaim.

Touring the High will be The Primitives, an indie rock band from Coventry, best known for their 1988 international hit single Crash. Reforming in 2009, the band’s two constant members throughout their recording career have been vocalist Tracy Tracy and guitarist Paul Court. Drummer Tig Williams has been a constant member since 1987. Often described as an indie pop or indie rock band, The Primitives’ musical style can also be seen as straddling power pop, new wave and post-punk.

Hugh Cornwell and the primitives will be playing the Leamington Assembly on 26th January. Tickets.
