Review of The Stranglers – Giants (Fontana North)

The StranglersThe Stranglers have been making records since 1977, the same year that the Sex Pistols released Never Mind The Bullocks. Unlike the Pistols however, The Stranglers are still very much a going concern. Instrumental opening track Another Camden Afternoon has a slight Peter Gunn-feel to it while Freedom Is Insane, Lowlands and the nostalgic Time Was Once On My Side show that while the hair may be a tad greyer, The Stranglers have yet to become a parody of their former selves. And that is no small task in this day and age.
