The Stranglers came to prominence during the mid-70's and thrived as outlaws on the Punk/New Wave scene that exploded across the UK in the latter period of that decade - much to the annoyance of the contemporary media! Their first three albums 'Rattus Norvegicus', 'No More Heroes' and 'Black and White' spawned such huge 'hits' as: 'Peaches', 'No More Heroes' and 'Nice'n'Sleazy'. These albums, reflecting the times, were full of tunes that were harsh and aggresive yet contained enough melody and humour to further intrigue and excite. 'Peaches' gave The Stranglers their first top-ten chart placing, though the song had to be edited before national radio and television airings were permitted!
