The Stranglers are a great band. Much talent for creating excellent melodies, have been associated with punk rock, though they themselves and many do not consider themselves punk properly. Also associated with New Wave and Gothic movements, but The Stranglers are definitely in a class of their own, unconstrained by such genre definitions. Their bassist Jean Jacques, has a distinctive sound that has been an influence on all the best bassists. They were known to fight their audiences and win, being originally a pub rock band. Very witty lyrics, more subtle than other bands of their time, such as Sex Pistols.
Whatever happened to all the heroes? All the Shakespearoes? They watched their Rome burn...
