If you feel like joining in the debate on whether the Stranglers were really a punk band, and you fancy being a witness for the prosecution, you could do worse than hunt down these pre-first album demos. Yep, they definitely sped things up a little hereafter. Most interesting of all is a version of "Strange Little Girl," one of the Stranglers' finest pop singles, several years before it was finally released.
