Hello

Post by ImHappyHopeYoureHappyToo »

Hey! I'm Cara and I'm 16 and I must confess I registered because I've been googling all morning and this is the only place I've found talking about the X-Ray Spex gig and I have a question :(

But it's stupid and rude to join just for that so I've been listening to The Stranglers on youtube and if anyone can recommend me some songs then I could be a project so to speak, here for converting 8)

Hi Cara

Welcome to the madhouse :lol: - after those four, move onto Black & White, Norfolk Coast and try the live albums - X-Certs & All Live.. (will give a flavour of the band 'live').

Hope you enjoy 8)

Aloha!
Dig the Bowie reference.

I heard rumour that there's a rather fine Stranglers compilation greatest best of hits album out soon. You could probably buy that.

Seriously though, listen to Rattus a couple of times and if that doesn't do it for you then probably nothing will.



Except for mibee The Raven.




Oh, and The Gospel According To TheMen!nBlack isn't bad also.



As, indeed, is La Folie.

And No More Heroes.

Likewise Suite XVI.

Oh, and Black & White has Laura Logic on it, so you might like that too.


No, thank you.

Hiya - Hope you get into the Stranglers - They've done many albums all with different moods/themes so it kinda depends what you're into. I'd probably recommend Black & White and La Folie.

Hi Cara.
If you download Rattus Norvegicus,
pay particular attention to Down in the sewer, this is a classic and a favourite of all Stranglers fans.
Enjoy. :wink:

Hi Cara, welcome.
Normally I wouldn't have minded.
