The Stranglers performing "Nice`N`Sleazy" accompanied by strippers at Battersea Park, London, in 1978.

“…Burnel: The Battersea Park incident was completely misinterpreted. I was living with my girlfriend, Tracy, who shared her flat with a stripper called Linda. When we became the focus of attention, right-on shops such as Rough Trade banned our records, saying they were sexist and misogynist. So Linda said: “Look, I’ve got some friends who’d love to strip for you – to show we’re in control of our bodies.” So these girls stripped off on stage at Battersea during Nice’n’Sleazy and, of course, everyone thought we were being exploitative.
Black: The police inspector wanted everybody arrested, but he couldn’t find his coppers. They were all in the front row watching the show…”

an american band getting its name from the term to refer to Celtic and Rangers (“Old Firm” Casuals) singing about the 1970’s pre-casual movement in Manchester and Liverpool (Perry Boys) in a video with the Millwall logo on his guitar, it all seems kinda lame to me
