PUNK | Hugh Cornwell 

The man who Rolling Stone once referred to as "UK punk's dark lord" pretty much solidified the melodic musical chasm between punk and new wave with his band The Stranglers (1974-1990). Cornwell's tune "Peaches" is one of the all-time coolest in the whole punk, post-punk lexicon. His latest album is the Steve Albini produced "Totem and Taboo." I caught Cornwell at his show here last year and must say, if anything, this legend has gotten better with age.

Hugh Cornwell plays with Pink Elephant and The Dirty Pennies on Friday, June 26, at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. 8 p.m. Free. lovincup.com; hughcornwell.com.
