This is a track from ‘No more heroes’ the second Stranglers album. It was produced by Martin Rushent, and released in 1977. The classic cover featured a photo of a wreath placed on a coffin with the tails of several rats (the Stranglers’ ‘trademark’). It was one of the first albums I bought, after many plugs on the John Peel show.
They are said to be the longest-surviving and most "continuously successful" band to have originated in the UK punk scene of the mid to late 1970s. Beginning life as the Guildford Stranglers on the 11th September 1974 with pub rock origins.
The Stranglers’ early sound was driven by Jean-Jacques Burnel’s melodic bass, but also gave prominence to Dave Greenfield’s keyboards at a time when the instrument was seen as unfashionable. Their early music was also characterised by the growling vocals and sometimes misanthropic lyrics of both Jean-Jacques Burnel and Hugh Cornwell.
To hear more (for my money), checkout any or all of the first 3 albums: Rattus Norvegicus (1977), No More Heroes (1977) & Black and White (1978 – I still have a promo grey/white vinyl version in my loft). Do tell ’em I sent you…
Trinity College, Dublin (TCD; Irish: Coláiste na Tríonóide, Baile Átha Cliath), formally known as the College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity of Queen Elizabeth near Dublin, was founded in 1592 by letters patent from Queen Elizabeth I as the "mother of a university", and is the only constituent college of the University of Dublin. Located in Dublin, Ireland, it is Ireland’s oldest university.
Trinity was set up in part to consolidate the rule of the Tudor monarchy in Ireland, and it was seen as the university of the Protestant Ascendancy for much of its history; although Roman Catholics and Dissenters had been permitted to enter as early as 1793, certain restrictions on their membership of the college remained until 1873 (professorships, fellowships and scholarships were reserved for Protestants) , and the Catholic Church in Ireland forbade its adherents, without permission from their bishop, from attending until 1970. Women were first admitted to the college as full members in 1904.
Its a cool place, make time in your busy life to spend an afternoon there.
This is the place to see the Book Of Kells or just to enjoy the green on a sunny afternoon. My thanks to MOB (you know who you are) for the suggested Dublin tour. I met some old friends and old ghosts during my afternoon.
