The Stranglers... Talk about a band that has been overlooked and underrated by all the Johnny Punk-Come-Latelies. You'd think because the band used a lot of synth, and formed before 1977, they weren't great, or important, or real. It's a shame, because they cranked out a lot of fun songs with edgy catchy lyrics showing an awareness of their world. Really, in the US, they're kind of non-entity. Back in the day, you had to be in the know to hear Golden Brown or Bring on the Nubiles. Here in Oz, like in England, everyone knows them and their songs were as big as anyone else's at the time. I think it was their song Nuclear Device that got them banned from the state of Queensland (or was it Australia itself?) for ridiculing the state/country for allowing the US or UK to test their nuclear weapons here. The video looks like it was shot in Australia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYCyTYm2lxA
