Punk rock girls half naked
The vulnerable soft floating voice of Manchester's Isa Holliday underneath layers of grungy shoegaze soaked noisepop, seeking shelter from a f'ed up world. You even mentioned Patti Smith's triumphant gig at the Roundhouse, well The Stranglers were the support band on this tour so there really is no excuse. The full-length Elegance Never Dies was released by the group's own Chromo Music Production by the end of the year, and the group toured throughout Europe in support of the album. Marquee Moon is probably the best album ever made but sold nowt and sometimes it pays to look at commercial aspects - that was part of how the revolution was measured, checked and balanced. Simply put, Cosmid is the girl next door.

Maybe that will get your own Dead Petz barking, maybe not. To spend so much time on the american bands I felt diluted the whole british punk movement, up until this particular episode I was really impressed with the clips and interviews which I hadnt seen before, but here we had the same old pistols doing the grundy thing and Lydon being Mr spokesman. They not only took it over, they crushed it! So how can the Stranglers be ignored in any Punk History probably because 'journalists' like Jon Savage are still smarting over JJ beating him up. To talk punk history, especially London punk history sans the Stranglers shows very little knowledge or research of the punk movement of that time and place. Whilst it is commendable that the BBC should make a series of programmes on this subject, an opportunity has been badly missed.

The Soap Girls have reported an alleged incident following a live performance in Hastings which they say was "horrible". BBC don't half hold grudges don't they. So grab those adv tix whilst you can The Stranglers had more anger and energy than the majority of the punk bands of the time but could put it across with fantastic melodies and song writing. The stranglers influence is heard even today. Graham Pole, Newark, UK. The very same group that once had a video banned from top of the pops Duchess in case it offended Sir Cliff Richard.
Strangled At Birth, Camden. You should have spoke to Nick Kent and Tony Parsons. Where are the Stranglers? Another so called look back at "punk" era To not mention them is either incompetence by some spotty researcher who actually believes the fiction of Malcolm McLaren or John Savage, or maybe something more sinister. The New York thing seems to to me an old punk to be pushing it a bit. I've been enjoying the seven Ages of Rock programmes, and especially looked forward to the 'Punk' episode - this being my era.
