Top band, great vocalist... if we got the Edge to play guitar and Bono on vocals in the Stranglers, wouldn't that be cool! Honest... :wink:

First few albums and singles are sound. I wasn't in to them from the very start but I got there before they'd had any hits, they were an exciting band. Not heard much of their stuff since probably Zooropa.
'Peaches - A Chronicle of The Stranglers from 1974 to 1990', out 2014 on Soundcheck Books.

Think I'll go for a stroll in the trees.

Listen, he wore a Stranglers T Shirt. That makes him an alright twat. If ISIS members wore a Stranglers T Shirt I'd warm to them as well. I have no scruples at all. If you're a stranglers fan your're okay
how did I get down here, well it's a long story

Too right m8, and get a decent bassist in too, like the one from U2, with Jim on drums... that would be awesome :wink:

I saw them in 1983 at Newcastle City Hall, when I was 17. I quite liked the early stuff.

I saw the Stranglers, Echo and the Bunneymen and U2 within a couple of weeks of each other. Quite an introduction to live music.
