Reviews

Below is my review for this release and the ratings.
This is my favourite Stranglers track from this period that was released as a single. Admittedly is does have a very large middle 8, even so I am happy humming along ... This is the version given away with Black & White album.

Further information

The Stranglers are an English rock band who emerged via the punk rock scene. The current members are Jean-Jacques Burnel, Baz Warne, Jim Macaulay and Toby Hounsham. Past members were Jet Black, Hugh Cornwell, Hans Warmling, Dave Greenfield, John Ellis and Paul Roberts.

Scoring some 23 UK top 40 singles and 17 UK top 40 albums to date in a career spanning four decades, the Stranglers are one of the longest-surviving and most "continuously successful" bands to have originated in the UK punk scene. Formed as the Guildford Stranglers on 11 September 1974 in Guildford, Surrey, they originally built a following within the mid-1970s pub rock scene. While their aggressive, no-compromise attitude identified them as one of the instigators of the UK punk rock scene that followed, their idiosyncratic approach rarely followed any single musical genre and the group went on to explore a variety of musical styles, from new wave, art rock and gothic rock through the sophisti-pop of some of their 1980s output. They had major mainstream success with their 1982 single "Golden Brown". Their other hits include "No More Heroes", "Peaches", "Always the Sun" and "Skin Deep" and the 2003 Top 40 hit "Big Thing Coming", which was seen as a return to form.
