Performer Notes

  • Personnel: Hugh Cornwell (vocals, guitar); Dave Greenfield (vocals, keyboards); Jet Black (drums, percussion).
  • Recording information: T.W. Studios, Fulham (07/1977).
  • Photographer: Trevor Rogers.
  • Punk's parents terribles, the Stranglers courted controversy throughout their early career. Caustic lyrics brought charges of misogyny, although the group suggested that outrage was merely part of the genre's tenet. They answered such criticism of their debut album with the even more uncompromising No More Heroes, a vengeful collection echoing the nihilism of its title. Role-playing apart, there was no denying a musical prowess compressing savage guitar, throbbing bass and swirling organ into vicious, driving sound. Hugh Cornwell's sneering intonation matched the aggression of his accompaniment, but the album also offered indications of the lighter pop style that the quartet would later follow.
Professional Reviews
Q (5/02 SE, p.142) - Included in Q's "100 Best Punk Albums".

Q (10/96, p.188) - 3 Stars - Good - "...musically more intricate....had probably the nastiest attitude of any record of its era."

Mojo (Publisher) (8/02, p.61) - "...Strove to maintain pace with the spirit of the times. Hence the preposterously offensive 'Bring On The Nubiles' and the yob philosophising of 'Something Better Change'..."
