As I learned from the internet Stranglers themselves are middle class guys but what about their fans? :?:

I think most fans start from humble beginnings but like all Punks end up as bloody bank managers or something :lol:

We dont that "class" thing in the Netherlands thank god.

But for arguments sake I'd say lower middle class.

I've long intended to post the verysame query, as I 'spect there are far more professionals here than layabouts. Our lair includes a nurse (Claire), published authors (the inblacks, Bob and Sam), plus a mighty sailor man (Toiler), as well as the usual lot of cubedwellers (which explains the amt of posts during Brit business hrs).

M'self, am a half-assed utilities cop inthe southeast US. Feck with me and, I'll cheerfully condemn yer water heater.

Others?

What relevance does this have? Are we going to need to post our incomes and IQ’s next? I don’t choose my friends based on either of these or on class so why does it matter on here when we all have the Stranglers in common?

Ms Bag Lady, the point is that the MIB's work holds meaning to all levels of society.

Are you asking what "class" we came from? Or what class we have dragged ourselves up to be? Or where are we now, apres recession?

Cos my answers would make interesting and totally contradictory reading...

I would say 90% of bands would be from middle class familys.
If anyone was in a band they would understand the logistics involved in getting instrments getting to gigs etc etc.
There have been a few exemptions but not that many.
So the stranglers wouldnt be alone in that respect.


Myself from a working Class upbringing grew up in Birmingham on a council estate
But even thoe my wage would match that of a middle class person i still and always will live in a working class estate.
In Ireland we have the same upper middle and working class system as in the uk.
But Europe dont always, found that strange.
