Solicitor in Claygate
The suburban village of Claygate is situated in the Surrey county in England and it is in this county that the English rock band “The Stranglers” were formed. The precise town they were formed in was Guildford and it would become part of the original name of the band “The Guildford Stranglers”. As The Guildford Stranglers they built a decent following in the mid 70s rock scene. They would soon drop the “Guildford” from their name and emerge from the punk rock scene that they were often associated with because they supported “The Ramones” on their first British tour. While they did embody the sound and traits of the punk rock scene such as aggression and a no-compromise attitude, they would soon branch out into more diverse sounds. In fact, The Stranglers would rarely settle into any one music genre and explored everything from new wave, gothic rock, art rock and a sophisticated pop sound.
The Stranglers were defined by the prominent keyboard playing of Dave Greenfield, which was unusual for a band at the time due to the keyboard being an unfashionable instrument. The distinctive growling vocals and misanthropic lyrics of their twin vocalists, Jean-Jacques Burnel and Hugh Cornwell were also hallmarks of The Stranglers sound.
The band is unique in that they have survived long after many of their contemporaries of the UK punk scene have disbanded or fallen into obscurity. The Stranglers had a revival in the 2000s when their song “Strange Little Girl’ was covered by Tori Amos and they had their song “Golden Brown” used in the hit film “Snatch”. The song “Peaches” was also used in the critically praised British movie “Sexy Beast”. They even achieved their first top 40 hit in 14 years with the song “Big Thing Coming” in 2004. All in all, The Stranglers had 23 songs that made it into the UK top 40 charts and a total of 17 UK top 40 albums.
