Discovering their captain committed murder before leaving port, the crew throws him overboard, at which point the storms instantly subside and they sail safely on. This Kentucky banjo player, the first man to put the song on disc, sets his coldly matter-of-fact vocals against a growing frenzy of clawhammer banjo playing.
I think we can all complain that our favourite bands were overlooked but the programme was looking at cultural impact not chart sales. Fiona, London. You see the Stranglers were truly Punk who were more concerned at the time about there fans and not selling out to the establishment.
They will continue to influence music fans for generations to come.
No Lip Lyrics. Search and Destroy. God Save the Queen [Dance Mix]. Troublemakers . The 76 Club [2-CD] .
The punk bands, the Sex Pistols sold a vast quantity of records in but the second highest selling Punk band were the Stranglers outselling the Clash in ! A little older maybe but if this band wasn't a major player at the time of the punk explosion then I wouldn't bother putting "pen to paper" now!
Naughty malchick that he was. Where is MY favourite band? If you can't improve on what you've already done in previous incarnations of this format, BBC, why bother?
What next a whole programme based on Status Quo's greatest hits. Are you saving the best for a latter edition? Not enough Patti Smith.
