Merging the aggressive guitar and vocals of Hugh Cornwall and the "carnival calliope gone wrong" keyboards of Dave Greenfield with the monolithic rhythms of bassist Jean-Jacques Burnel and drummer Jet Black, The Stranglers were one of the most musically distinctive bands to come out of the early British punk movement. In 1978, The Stranglers set out on their first tour of the United States, and this home video release preserves a low-tech recording of their enthusiastically received San Francisco debut. The Stranglers: Live '78, San Francisco features the songs "Burning Up Time," "Bring on the Nubiles," "London Lady," "Dead Ringer," and more.
