The Stranglers – 96 Tears (12″)


From 1990 and with the swirl of the organ you would be forgiven it was Inspiral Carpets or something from the 60’s , before the BIG SPLIT this tickled the upper reaches of the chart. It was a cover version of a sixties song by the Question Mark & The Mysterons (?!) The 12″ version is not that noticeably different if a little longer, got to love the precise drumming. “Instead Of This” comes over all late Roxy Music via Iggy Pop, husky vocals from JJ. Other , quality B-side , “Poisonality” is a classic with Hugh Cornwell , asking us to “Gather Round.”
