Scoring some 23 UK top 40 singles and 17 UK top 40 albums to date in a career spanning four decades, the Stranglers are one of the most continuously successful bands to have originated in the UK punk scene of the mid to late 1970s.

Beginning life as the Guildford Stranglers in 1974 they originally built a following within the mid-1970s pub rock scene. While their aggressive, no-compromise attitude identified them as one of the instigators of the UK punk rock scene that followed, their idiosyncratic approach rarely followed any single musical genre and the group went on to explore a variety of musical styles, from new wave, art rock and gothic rock through the sophisticated pop of some of their 1980s output.

Original members Jet Black, Jean-Jacques Burnel and Dave Greenfield are joined by Baz Warne on guitar, lead and backing vocals.
