When you're a bunch of bohemian weirdos of a certain age who are done pretending to be punks

I love it!

Someone whose opinion I respect said that the production/mixing leaves a lot to be desired and is not of a standard comparable to the Stranglers. Maybe, but I'll take that over an impeccably recorded album with songs that are not as imaginative.

Also, Hugh in this video is my platonic ideal of Looking Really ****ing Cool. My man oozes menace.

Listened to Rattus properly for the first time in don't know how many years and liked it so much more than before. I think back in the day I wasn't quite ready for how much of a pub rock album it is, with the way the lyrics are barked out and yelled etc. I just wanted something more akin to the arty postpunk of The Raven and Gospel, or at least the punk of No More Heroes. Always loved Peaches and Grip though.

It's the Stranglers album of choice of their original following, a bunch of loud working or low-middle class pub-going British geezers, and it rules.

Really nifty electropop track wherein Hugh prophesizes the impending collapse of the American empire. Cool video too. Just wish the keyboard solo by the late great Dave Greenfield was a bit less banal and half-arsed.

This is the closest I've heard to a direct homage to The Strangers and it's so good too. Ariel you beautiful freak.

What you get when you refuse to bury that which is dead

Super important band here in New Jersey. They always came out here and turned a lot of us onto punk
