Great post, and nice detective work! Love the Stranglers. Here's an in-depth recent interview...

So cool! The Meninblack have long been on my "need to see if they ever come back here" list.

Interesting conclusion about the picture reversal, Alex.
As for The Stranglers not coming to the States, Hugh wanted to be big in America, the rest of the band must not have been keen on it. From past interviews, it's clear that JJ certainly was not fond of the American lifestyle, nor did he care about large scale fame and fortune, because that would have meant losing creative control to the record companies, and worse than that, becoming boring.
