When I finally heard Stranglers IV: Rattus Norvegicus, the album Peaches came from, I was struck by how different it was to the three-chord, three-minute thrashing of the Pistols, The Clash, Buzzcocks et. al. This was a prowling, sleeker sound, with the emphasis on a rumbling bass and – a first for a so called punk band – plaintive keyboards and swirling Hammond organ. The packaging was different too: there wasn’t a safety pin in sight on the black, minimalist cover which featured an arty shot of the band in a gloomy country house. The Stranglers IV: Rattus Norvegicus was originally released on 15 April 1977 by United Artists Records. It’s been reissued by EMI several times, including as a digipak with bonus CD-EP in 1995, with extra tracks in 2001, and as a 2-CD set with ‘Black and White’ in 2003.
Rattus Norvegicus is the first studio album by The Stranglers, released on 17 April 1977. The band's name was printed as "The Stranglers IV" on the sleeve. The album was originally to be entitled "Dead on Arrival" but was changed at the last minute. The album's title is the taxonomic name for the common brown rat. It was produced in one week by Martin Rushent, and was basically a snapshot of the band's live set at the time. EAC extraction logfile from 26. October 2010, 19:38.

The Stranglers' early work is most properly described as stripped-down pop played with a hardcore sensibility; fairly lengthy songs with frequent solo breaks, prominent keyboard usage, and occasional employment of vocal harmony sets them apart from their peers. But snarling lead singing that puts forth steful lyrics predominates here, clearly showing the group's punk affinity. Most of the songs on this album fit the description of hardcore pop to a tee, but there are a few deviations from this model
However, their debut album is one that demonstrates, unlike many of their peers in 1977, the Stranglers were skilled musicians and songwriters. Keyboard aside they had more of a punk attitude then many other acts. Even if a lot of the hype was fictional they were a band that made great music. Rattus Norvegicus, (the Latin name for the rats responsible for the plague) is an outstanding album. It has aged well and the dexterity of all four band mates is clear through out. If it comes in the form of Hugh Cornwell’s psychedelic guitar licks, which shows prominence in ‘Down In The Sewer’.
