This Stranglers convention was built around the band’s third album ‘ Black and White’ which they played in it’s near entirety. ‘Black And White’ was the Stranglers third album in a year and a ground breaking release in early 1978. Already argued is the fact that the album was the first post punk release, a real ground changer. It came out of punk and explored the new territory and was dark, stark, surreal and entering a new terrain with an intelligence and an aggression that retained a punk attack but dismantled the music and created something quite new. It also had the best bass sound ever recorded but that’s another story. The fact is Stranglers made this into pop music and the album was a big seller in 1978. The band occasionally still play songs from the album in their set but this revisit of the album was the first time they had played some of the other songs for years or in some cases ever. What was most striking about the set was how little of the material had actually dated and the album’s stark vision of the future remains intact. Looking forward to the March 2016 tour, when this will be played again.

Album: Black and White Released: May 12, 1978 Hometown: Guildford, Surrey, England The release of ”Nice ‘N Sleazy”, The Stranglers’ first single from their third album, Black and White seems like a bid to maintain the group’s reputation as punk provocateurs. Certainly the sleeve art, a police crime photo of a female murder victim, helped raise a stir and fed the band’s appetite for contention but the song’s hooky bass line and faux reggae rhythms helped the track find it’s way into the top twenty on the U.K. singles chart in 1978. Upon closer inspection the song is concerned more with vague historical references of conquest and plunder than a simple celebration of sexual lechery. As the band groove on chunks of backstroked guitar set against an expressive bass line and staggered mid-tempo drums, spiced by keyboard accents, singer Hugh Cornwell summons tales of old. The chorus is a quick building stomp, with Cornwell repeating the title with a dark zeal. The arrangement is rather odd as well, going into several choruses and instrumental breaks after just one verse with bassist J.J. Burnel taking solo like runs before giving way to keyboardist Dave Greenfield’s quirky synth effects and organ surges. The second and last verse comes near the end of the recording where Cornwell again sings of the rape and pillage sagas that have fueled the dark lusts of men for centuries. The Stranglers are an English rock band who emerged via the punk rock scene. Scoring some 23 UK top 40 singles and 17 UK top 40 albums to date in a career spanning four decades, the Stranglers are one of the longest-surviving and most "continuously successful" bands to have originated in the UK punk scene of the mid to late 1970s. Beginning life as the Guildford Stranglers on 11 September 1974 in Guildford, Surrey, they originally built a following within the mid-1970s pub rock scene. While their aggressive, no-compromise attitude identified them as one of the instigators of the UK punk rock scene that followed, their idiosyncratic approach rarely followed any single musical genre and the group went on to explore a variety of musical styles, from new wave, art rock and gothic rock through the sophisticated pop of some of their 1980s output.
