Digitally remastered in 2001 with 3 bonus tracks. Released in April 1977, The Stranglers notorious debut immediately made a distinctly controversial impression on the media while selling like the proverbial hotcakes, pushing it to the number four position in the nation's album chart. John Peel, that champion of the unfashionable, had played the bands first single Grip/London Lady, quite a bit, and the constant gigging the Stranglers had done for the previous two years had finally born fruit. Calling your debut album after a rat probably wouldn't be everybody's idea of a snappy title, but then this group were never for a second interested in other peoples opinions. In truth the album title reads 'The Stranglers IV Rattus Norvegicus', and it was done so in a deliberate effort to confuse people, and it worked. When actually listening to this album for the first few times you couldn't be blamed for thinking this was an 'angry young people' type album, or an anti-establishment type album like so many more of that era. A lot was assumed about The Stranglers in their early days, especially by one or two new journalists on the scene writing for the music papers at that time. This album shows how The Stranglers made their own style. It wasn't punk, despite the media trying to class it as such, and it wasn't copied from anyone, despite the comparison by some to The Doors style, especially Dave Greenfield's keyboard technique and sound. 'Rattus Norvegicus' shows how The Stranglers were setting their own mark, their own identity and how they weren't afraid to experiment. Their rather surreal and menacing lyrics showed their creativity and imagination.
