The Stranglers

Profilo:
English rock band (New Wave, Punk, Rock), formed as the Guildford Stranglers on 11 September 1974 in Guildford, Surrey, UK.
The Stranglers' early sound was driven by Jean-Jacques Burnel's melodic bass, but also gave prominence to Dave Greenfield's keyboards. Their early music was also characterised by the growling vocals and sometimes misanthropic lyrics of both Burnel and Hugh Cornwell

In 1977, I was only 14 and didn’t understand punk, as my favourite bands were Deep Purple, Santana and Kansas. My cousin was a year and a half older than me and going out to the tunes of the Specials and the B52s by 1978 and also bought ‘Never mind … ‘ and ‘Rattus …’. My first forays into the new wave were ‘Flex’ by Lene Lovich and ‘Black & White’ w/ that white 7”. The Stranglers had superior musicianship and great ideas about how music should evolve and I followed them religiously until Hugh left. ‘B&W’ is still my favourite Stranglers album (those keyboards throughout over those rough bass and guitar tones!); It took me 3 or 4 more years until seeing Depeche Mode live to say my prog and jazz-rock albums farewell and embrace postpunk wholeheartedly and the Stranglers remained a favourite for some time. Still waiting for a cd re-release of ‘Fire & water (Ecoutez vos murs)’;the 2008 edition is too expensive.

Contrary to the listing above,No More Heroes was, of course, The Stranglers 2nd album, coming months after IV Rattus Norvegicus.

The Stranglers were one of the most talented and original bands to emerge from the punk/new wave era. I saw them at Wembley stadium supporting 'the Who' in 1979 and a couple of times after that. They were superb live and also fantastic studio artists. One of the few bands from that era I can still listen to. They are likened to the doors for some unknown reason but I think only because they used keyboards (the genius of Greenfield). I can't see any similarity myself. Miles better than the clash in my opinion but never given the same level of kudos ( I'd like to have seen Joe Strummer square up to JJ, that would have been funny). I also met them once at their 'Golden brown' appearance on top of the pops, they were really nice and not big headed at all. Proper geezers. Massively talented. They also helped 'the Skids' out when they were trying to break into the punk scene. I love them for that as well. If I could go back in time and see an old band they would be right up there on the list. Along with the Skids of course. Two of the best live bands from that period. Both monumentally underrated. But not by me.

Punk was (& should always be) an ATTITUDE not a fashion! Punk was about being original & being different. THE STRANGLERS were unique in their style then, but their sound owes much to THE DOORS, which again shows punks' many styles in which you take your influences & create something new. Punk was never about being pigeonholed into one particular sound & style, of which was lost during the 2nd wave of punk whern all the bands became copies of each other. Listen to the diverse sounds of the SEX PISTOLS, THE CLASH & THE DAMNED, & then compare to ADAM & THE ANTS (pre his stupid pirate era), SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES & WIRE, & then again to THE BUZZCOCKS & THE JAM. All totally different styles, yet all were punk rock.

Upon arrival, the Stranglers were perhaps inappropriately corralled into London's boisterous Punk camp. Like many Punk bands, they specialized in offensive, woman-baiting song lyrics and chord-defacing guitar speed, and they were notorious for mercilessly hectoring their fans who appeared to enjoy the abuse. But though they've been around long enough to witness the style's evolution through its Pre- and Post- phases, calling the Stranglers "Punk" dilutes the term's precision. In the band's early days, they sounded more like a faster, harder Dr. Feelgood with tracks like "no more heroes", "peaches", "something better change" "straighten out" than the Sex Pistols. Later they started to sound more "sing-a-long" like Genesis with releases like "strange little girl" & "always the sun." If you compare the bands first LP Rattus Norvegicus (preceding the arrival of the Pistols' Never Mind the Bollocks by a number of months), and 1986's flame-retardant Dreamtime there is a world of difference, this for me is the sign of a good band. Id compare their evolution to that of the Clash, from the early "in your face", two fingers to the establishment sound to the more artistic, easy listening sounds as the band matured, ["Golden brown" will forever be a classic]. Having said that,they once played on Top of the Pops with no strings in their guitars, and were forever refusing to answer the press [most notably JJ Brunel in interviews!!]. However,the band have continued in the abscence of singer Hugh Cornwell who thought the band had run out of steam and has pursued a solo career, but like the Jam touring without Weller i cant help thinking this is just like panto, and a band going through the motions, cashing in on past success. Over their quarter century career in music these quasi-Punk dinosaurs seem to be going the way of all dinosaurs by slowly calcifying into fossils.
