The Stranglers: 'We were on a mission to break all the rules'

The Stranglers, who were famed for their rock and roll lifestyles, are due to start touring again after four decades in the music industry.

One of the band's best know songs was the 1981 hit Golden Brown.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast, drummer Jet Black agreed that the band did have a "bad boy" image in the 1970s.

"In the beginning we were on a mission to break all the rules," he said.
