The Stranglers – The Artist

The Stranglers are an English rock band who emerged via the punk rock scene. Scoring some 23 UK top 40 singles and 17 UK top 40 albums to date in a career spanning four decades, the Stranglers are one of the longest-surviving and most “continuously successful” bands to have or they originally built a following within the mid-1970s pub rock scene. While their aggressive, no-compromise attitude identified them as one of the instigators of the UK punk rock scene that followed, their idiosyncratic approach rarely followed any single musical genre and the group went on to explore a variety of musical styles, from new wave, art rock, gothic rock and pop. The original personnel were drums / Jet Black, bass player/vocalist Jean-Jacques Burnel, guitarist/vocalist Hugh Cornwell and keyboardist/guitarist Hans Wärmling, who was replaced by keyboardist Dave Greenfield within a year.

Peaches – The Song

Peaches, is a 1977 single by The Stranglers from the album Rattus Norvegicus. is a seminal punk rock song and single by The Stranglers. The track peaked at No. 8 in the UK Singles Chart. “Peaches” was controversial because of its anarchist, non-conformist, “sexual” content, primarily aimed at shaking up the establishment and poking the eye of the new politically correct punk movement. The song’s narrator is girl-watching on a crowded beach one hot summer day. It is never made clear if his lascivious thoughts (such as “there goes a girl and a half”) are an interior monologue, comments to his mates, or come-on lines to the attractive women in question. Critic Tom Maginnis writes that Hugh Cornwell sings with “a lecherous sneer, the sexual tension is so unrelenting as to spill into macho parody or even censor-baiting territory” The single was a double A-side with pub rock song “Go Buddy Go” which was played on UK radio at the time and also on the band’s BBC TV Top of the Pops appearance because the sexual nature of the lyrics of “Peaches” caused the BBC to ban it. Still, “Peaches” it reached No. 8 in the UK Singles Chart. The radio cut, however, had to be re-recorded with less explicit lyrics: “clitoris” was replaced with “bikini”, “oh shit” with “oh no” and “what a bummer” with “what a summer”.

The Peach  – The Shape

The peach (Prunus persica) is a deciduous tree native to the region of Northwest China between the Tarim Basin and the north slopes of the Kunlun Mountains, where it was first domesticated and cultivated. It bears an edible juicy fruit called a peach or a nectarine.The specific name persica refers to its widespread cultivation in Persia (modern-day Iran), from where it was transplanted to Europe. It belongs to the genus Prunus which includes the cherry, apricot, almond and plum, in the rose family. The peach is classified with the almond in the subgenus Amygdalus, distinguished from the other subgenera by the corrugated seed shell.
