The Stranglers Live '78 SF DVD (MVD)

The Stranglers Live '78 SF DVD (MVD)… In the early eighties, getting a Target video was not unlike receiving confidential documents. You gathered your war party to watch what the cool people were doing hundreds/thousands of miles away, and then were debriefed by the unfortunates not privy to the original viewing. Even at the time, there was an eerie/timeless appeal to the older videos, like this Stranglers live show. Sure, the quality isn't great, but it's good enough to get an idea of how unique and interesting these "art punks" were. It's a bit short, but they were a bit British--which usually meant you were lucky if you got even thirty minutes back then.
