Johnny Sox would evolve into The Stranglers in 1974. "Golden Brown" is a song by the English rock band The Stranglers. It was released as a 7" single in December 1981, on Liberty.

It reached #2 in the official UK singles chart in February 1982, behind "Town Called Malice" by The Jam. It was reissued in 1991, but without much success, peaking at only #68 in the.
