Straighten Out – The Ultimate Tribute to The Stranglers





Category: Music

Straighten Out are the world’s premier Stranglers tribute band. They have an extensive set-list that spans two solid hours as they recreate the ”early years” sound of The Stranglers, complete with a Hammond organ and Minimoog synth, the same models used by Mr. Greenfield himself, back in the day.

The growling bass sound and the quirky guitar riffs are all there to be heard as is the dual vocal ”attack” from the two frontmen a la Burnel/Cornwell as they rip through the Stranglers’ classics ‘Peaches’, ‘Hanging Around’, ‘No More Heroes’, ‘5 Minutes’, ‘The Raven’, ‘Walk on By’, ‘Straighten Out’, ‘Down In The Sewer’ and many more.
Straighten Out will take you on a nostalgia trip that transports you back to those raw, powerful, exhilarating times when The Stranglers emerged to produce some of the finest music ever written.
Bassist Shaggy and keyboard player Mick (‘The Doc’) were together in previous Stranglers tribute band Four More Heroes and it was only natural that these two continued on after their demise to form Straighten Out given their love of Stranglers music and the desire to keep playing live.They set the platform with the growling bass and swirling keyboard sound so essential to reproducing the authentic Stranglers sound. Joining them are Jet ‘Beets’ on drums and Phil on guitar – providing the ‘Hugh’ element – to complete the fearsome foursome. Straighten Out are a must-see tribute band.
