“The sound was fantastic and very ‘very’ authentic, from the snarling vocal and biting guitar, to the swirling keyboard via the growling bass and relentless pounding drums. If you had closed your eyes it could’ve been 1977!”
STRAIGHTEN OUT are the world’s premier Stranglers tribute band with an extensive set-list that spans two solid hours as they re-create the 'early years' sound of The Stranglers, complete with a Hammond organ and Minimoog synth; the same models used by Mr. Greenfield himself, back in the day!
The growling bass sound and the quirky guitar riffs are all there to be heard as is the dual vocal 'attack' from the two frontmen a-la Burnel/Cornwell as they rip through the Stranglers classics: 'Peaches', 'Hanging Around', 'No More Heroes', '5 Minutes', 'The Raven', 'Walk On By', 'Straighten Out', 'Down In The Sewer' and many more as they cover the Stranglers' early classic albums and beyond.
Straighten Out will take you on a nostalgia trip that transports you back to those raw, powerful, exhilarating times when The Stranglers emerged through the quagmire of mediocrity to produce some of the finest music ever written.
Straighten Out will put you back in that place!
