School Mam

Closely followed by Peasant.

Toss up between SBC and Heroes. These two tracks are two of the strongest recordings of 77 in my opinion. Dagenham Dave is also a classic (love the Radio 1 in concert version with Hugh's intro). I would say that English Towns is a much underrated track... the band considering it to be filler. Burning Up Time (no disrespect to certain forums!) is probably the weakest on the album.

NMH for me - I never get tired of hearing it, and the single was the first Stranglers vinyl I bought in 1977.
Bitching is a close second, though I don't recall ever hearing it live. :?

NMH for me is the stand out, but the entire album is very good. 8)

'Peasant In The Big Shitty' for me... it's always been my highlight of this album, love how weird and wonderful it is.
