Get A Grip On The Stranglers’ History
Formed in 1974, The Stranglers came on to the scene just as ‘Time gentlemen please’ was being called on Pub Rock, which mutated into Punk and New Wave.
Never truly accepted as Punks, The Stranglers ploughed their own more melodic and thoughtful furrow. As JJ Burnel said: ‘Were we Punk? Could I give a fuck?’ The point is though, they have outlasted their contemporaries and are still going strong to this day.
Author and über fan Robert Endeacott traces The Stranglers’ stormy story from birth to 1990, when founder member Hugh Cornwell quit the band, its first major line-up change. Written loosely in a diary format - with a mix of original interviews and extensive research - Peaches charts the key events, albums and gigs in the group’s history, as well as covering some overlooked incidents that fans will want to read about.
In fact, this is very much a fans’ book. The author is active within The Stranglers’ community and many contributions and anecdotes from fans are included, along with some rare and previously unseen photos.
