Rattus Norvegicus – The Stranglers


Rattus Norvegicus – The Stranglers (1977)

This is the first studio album recorded by London Punk band The Stranglers. I’ve been listening to it a lot recently. Hard to believe it was produced in only one week by Martin Rushent (Buzzcocks, Human League). These days I feel like albums take forever to make.

This video of The Stranglers on TopPop is amazing, especially when the air drumming comes in. I think their keyboard player is the only one taking this seriously.
