The Stranglers – Always The Sun

The line up may have changed a bit since they formed in 1974 but the Stranglers continue to release records, the 17th of which ‘Suite XVI’ came out 2 years ago. In fact the band have the distinction of having hits in 4 different decades. ‘Always The Sun’ was released way back in 1986 but it retains a polished sound, records this great rarely age. Initially the band were lumped in with the punk movement but their songs often belied this fact. Cornwell may have hidden much in his ambiguous lyrics but the surrounding melody was squeaky clean and poptastic. ‘Always The Sun’ came out at a time when the Stranglers career was waning, just 4 years later Cornwell had left citing that the band had become a spent creative force.
