The second "tribute" was that bad I actually thought they were going to launch into an ungodly version of Sting's 'Message in a Bottle', rather than 'Tank'.

The Manglers by name...

I do not know if you are familiar with Doug Donut. He is actually a very great musician in his own right. One of the best drummers to come out of punk rock as well. He was in the band Death Sentence out of Canada.

While I can admit it is far from being professional, it is still a tribute to something the guy loves, so I can respect it for what it is.

But yeah, as I say... not a full time tribute to them.... just something he does for fun, even he will admit he is not on their level, but does it anyways out of genuine care for The Stranglers. The name The Manglers was meant as a similar name and as a way of admitting it was mangling the band... but out of respect nonetheless.

They really are an exceptional band!
I remember the first time I heard "Peaches" it totally warped my fragile little mind!
I need to get more of their catalogue, at the moment I only have a couple live recordings (which are glorious) and a "Best Of", given to me by my friend's wife-of-a-minister Mother, which I thought was a little odd at the time...

The three to get are Rattus Norvegicus with some superb Doors sounding organ work on it, No More Heroes sees the band at its most agressive and The Raven probably the creative high point of the band

You might want to check out Black and White as well, not as good as the three mentioned but from the same period and has some really good stuff on it.

Just found Rattus Norvegicus in full on Youtube! It sounds properly exceptional, think I may have to try and buy it from somewhere


Edit: Holy balls! That opening bassline in "Goodbye Toulouse"! That is awesome as all hell!

Luv the stranglers <3

Very unique band with very simple but memorable songs
they remained punk but had a new age twist i honestly prefer them over the clash.
