The Stranglers - My Young Dreams

The Stranglers at their rawest. This beautifully honest 1974 demo, driven by a despairing arpeggiated piano, laid the foundations for one of the most successful punk/new-wave acts of the 1970s and 80s. Co-written by Hans Wärmling and later reinvented unflatteringly as a synth-pop ballad, this track is truly a lost gem.

Label: demo
Year: 1974
Genre: Punk, New Wave
