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.
Strange Little Girl – The Song
Strange Little Girl is a song by the Stranglers, originally written in 1974 and re-recorded and released in the UK in 1982 as their last single while signed to Liberty Records (part of EMI). By the time of release, the band had already decided to leave the label for Epic Records, and this last single was part of the severance deal, along with the compilation album, The Collection 1977-1982. A version of the song was recorded by Tori Amos in 2001 and released as a single from her album Strange Little Girls.
The Strange little Girl – The Shape
Modelled into a strange little girl holding a suitcase and a teddy bear. Inspired by the songs lyrics “Strange Little Girl where are you going.” The idea behind the design of the large eyed gothic girl comes after watching the 2005 ‘The Corpses Bride’ a stop-motion animated musical fantasy film directed by Mike Johnson and Tim Burton.
