image for The Stranglers To Reissue Classic 1982 Single
"never a frown...with Gordon Brown"

The Stranglers, the iconic late 1970s punk supergroup with a string of memorable hits, have marked the forced installation of Britain's new Prime Minister by re-releasing their 1982 chartbusting single, Gordon Brown.

The song, in much the same way as Mr Brown, eventually reached no.10, and was far more palatable to the general public than some of their earlier offerings, just as Mr Brown appears to be a more bearable prospect than his predecessor, the war criminal Tony Bliar. It will be released next Monday 2 July.

Stranglers lead singer Hugh Cornwell said:

"We hate Tony Bliar. I'd personally like to strangle him."

Another member of the group, bassist Jean Jacques Burnel, who is very nearly related to Isambard Kingdom Brunel the railway engineer, had a message for the incoming Mr Brown when he said:

"It's a big job, but the money's no good. Just (Get A) Grip (On Yourself)."

Mr Brown spoke outside his new Downing Street home yesterday after meeting the Queen, and told reporters that in his government, there would be many changes and new priorities.

Stranglers drummer Jet Black, now 104, echoed Mr Brown's sentiment, saying:

"The Labour Party has been Nice'n'Sleazy for years."Something Better Change!"

The Stranglers have nothing to do with the murder/unmurder of Bob Woolmer.
