Biography

The story of how The Stranglers came into existence in the first place, is perhaps atypical of the music industry. No less surprising then, that it’s history too, is unusual. It began in 1973 and that story is both long and complex.

A lengthy discourse covering those formative days has now been covered in some considerable detail in Jet's musical odyssey elsewhere on these ... Read more in Amazon's Stranglers Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

"You either love or you despise, there's just no room for compromise" spat Anglo-French bassist Jean-Jacques Burnel on "Burning Up Time". And by the time of No More Heroes--the Stranglers' second album--the battle lines were drawn between those (the press and the women's movement, mainly) who saw the future "Meninblack" as uncouth sexist pigs peddling aggressive punk Doors music and those for whom The Stranglers were a fantastically melodic, intelligent punk-rock combo, albeit one with a dangerously dry sense of humour and a swift-fingered, pipe-smoking keyboard player. The former had plenty to complain about: Elderly aunts up and down the land must have fainted the day an unwitting Dave Lee Travis played "I Feel Like A Wog" ("out on the dirty shitty jobs") on Radio One, so it's probably just as well they never got to hear the teacher-pupil relationship smut of "School Ma'm" (most unsavoury line--"disgusting behaviour, all over the parquet flooring") or the infamously rude "Bring On The Nubiles", which was chanted like testosterone-charged Daleks and featured the word "fuck" eight times. Musically, The Stranglers were on a roll--Dave Greenfield's use of Hammond organ and Moogsynth coupled with Burnel's sonorous belch of a bass and Hugh Cornwell's not-bothered vocal made them instantly recognisable. And at least half of No More Heroes is every bit as good as Rattus Norvegicus (in fact, most of the album was recorded at the same time). It's also the only Stranglers album to spawn two Top 10 singles, namely the gutteral call-to-arms of "Something Better Change" and the iconoclastic title track--a genuine rock classic. --Kevin Maidment

5.0 out of 5 stars Heroes on this album though! 18 Aug 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Stranglers released two albums in 1977, both of which had a plethora of tunes full of dark energy, musical genius and humour. Rattus Norvegicus tested the water, and once they got away with that, they recorded this album without fear.
EVERYONE knows the title track, but there are plenty of other great songs here. Growling bass, thumping drums, swirling keyboards and harsh guitar all meld into a complex sound that wraps itself around your head with ease.
If you're easily offended by such topics as an elderly school mam dying from an orgasm induced by watching teacher/pupil sex on CCTV, then this is not for you, but if you like to hear your speakers rattle and want some good, solid songs that sound fresh everytime you pull this album out then buy it. It's a classic!

4.0 out of 5 stars rattus 2 25 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
when this album first came out i was a young herbert of 13 - and just loved the whole sound (clear but aggressive)- i think i liked it more than rattus at the time mainly because it had more swearing on it - now when i listen i find it hard to tell where rattus ends and no more hero's begins - both are masterpieces - rattus with poppies (but no pop - that unfortunately came later )

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it! 10 May 2012
By J.P.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was 15 when this was first released and I think it has aged well, probably better than me!
JJ's bass, Hugh's guitar, Dave's keyboards & Jet's drums still sound sharp and the songs are aggressive & well written.
Maybe even witty.......
Do yourself a favour, buy this album, put on your old leather and some tatty jeans and sneer. It'll make your day!

4.0 out of 5 stars The difficult follow up 22 Oct 2007
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Both the single and album, 'No More Heroes,' were eagerly gobbled up by punk fans already familiar with the band's exhilarating mix of brutal bass and keyboard runs. While the single gained a unanimous thumbs-up as did the other hit, 'Something Better Change,' the album took some criticism for being a pale rehash of The Stranglers' debut effort. In truth, some of the lyrical content is too obviously rude for the sake of it, but the band still had some imaginative ideas, notably 'Dead Ringer,' 'Dagenham Dave,' and 'Burning Up Time.' 'School Mam,' which finishes the album, is almost vaudevillean, if tasteless. Bonus tracks bolster the album, however. The cannibalistic vision, 'Straighten Out,' is a superb b-side, while both sides of the inexplicably forgotten hit, '5 Minutes' are also here. Not quite as good as most of their other albums, 'No More Heroes' is nevertheless well worth acquiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars They watched their Rome burn.... 28 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
I'll state my position unequivocally: 'Stranglers IV : No More Heroes' is, after 'Stranglers IV (Rattus Norvegicus)', the best album the band ever made. It's better than 'Black and White', better than 'The Raven', better than 'Meninblack'...and why? Because its genesis lies in the same period of songwriting, touring and living-in-each-others-pockets during the mid -70s that spawned the sublime 'Rattus' and because it was recorded by Martin Rushent and Alan Winstanley, who understood that all they needed to do was capture the finest British rock group of all time in flight, playing together, then add a little sheen....

'No More Heroes' reeks of speed. It's an unforgiving, evil, rasping record, without patience or pity or light, but a record is that nonetheless shot through with humour, elan and martial-arts precision, an album that celebrates the 'Crisis? What Crisis?' state of Britain in 1977, revelling in the blackness of its social setting, dripping with misanthropy and hatred, yet at the same time saying that there is a way to survive Punk Rock UKs awful grimness - and that way was through the expression of vibrant, life-affirming energy. And there's the rub, friends...even at their harshest, The Stranglers offered a positive alternative : while they acknowledged the darkness of our country at the time, they showed that there was a way forward, that the electrical spirit of their angry psychedelia was enough to get us through to better times. 'No More Heroes' may be a hymn to nihilism, but it's also a realists' album - for we all know that despite the blackness that often settles over our lives, there are still blessings to count and that sometimes, kicking against the pricks is enough to get us through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album 30 Nov 2010

One of their best in my opinion, along with Rattus, Black and white and The Raven. If you don't know The Stranglers you could find worse places to start.

It's ok, but not great as a Stranglers comp goes. Some proper classic tracks seriously missing, others I wouldn't have included (you look at the track list & make your mind up). Read more
