For The Stranglers, 1977 was a vital year. Not quite punk, certainly not pop and often at odds with live audiences and the music press alike, their approach was such that nothing could stop them. With hits like 'Peaches', 'No More Heroes' and 'Something Better Change', there was everything to play for despite a variety of confrontations and controversies. With two commercially and musically strong albums — Rattus Norvegicus (their debut) and No More Heroes — released within months of each other, the story of The Stranglers in 1977 is one that needs to be told. With vintage interviews and reviews in abundance, this book comprehensively documents it all with immense detail.
