The Stranglers – The UA Singles 79-82

With the exception of 1982’s “Strange Little Girl” and the organ-parping heroin eulogy “Golden Brown”, these dozen CD facsimiles of The Stranglers’ seven-inches from the albums The Raven, Meninblack and La Folie could be collectively dubbed ‘the misses’. But did they seriously expect results with singles as knowingly peculiar as 1980’s “Just Like Nothing On Earth”? Two rare imports?”Sweden” in Swedish, “Don’t Bring Harry” in French?are of interest to connoisseurs, but the rest sounds dated and faintly absurd.
