… but live, going by you tube video, they just sound a load of noise to me.
That's probably just youtube users recording quality - loads of Stranglers videos are rotten quality on there as well. I saw them locally once or twice - in the 2000s - and they were pretty good. Sound was certainly better than the Buzzcocks in the same venue, their gig was just noise with the odd bit of recognisable tune in it.

The Damned... great band. They have written many really good songs and are not a simple noise combo. And the original singer Dave Vanian is still in the band 😎. Wish Hugh hadn't quit nearly 30 years ago.

Standing on the edge of tomorrow is a brilliant track. Street of dreams and Shadow of love are crackers too!

Strawberries and The Black Album for me. Strawberries probably more accessible due to it's poppy vibe to it.Strawberries is jolly good fun.

Strawberries is a favourite of mine. Also very fond of Grave Disorder.

The last Damned studio album Evil Spirits (Oct. 2018) is at least as good as The Stranglers Giants album, probably "better" 🤓.
Latest offer of a new Damned song: https://youtu.be/da7Bc_w4nhM
A whole new album is in the pipeline according to an interview with Dave Vanian a few months ago. But a new drummer has yet to be found and due to the Covid19 crises there won't be much band activities in the next three or four months. A new Captain Sensible Grew Cells album is announced ready in the near future.
Back to The Stranglers...

On balance of things I'd say Killing Joke , though of late ( say past 12 years or so ) , they've probably been superior to The Stranglers in both quality and quantity of output .
Other mentions , Chelsea - a very under rated original wave punk band , The Lurkers , Motorhead , The Skids , The Blood plus many many more .
The Clash were excellent for two albums IMO but dropped off my radar from London Calling onwards .
All quiet ..........

The Lurkers are great fun live- only seen them a couple of times but they were very entertaining both times.
