Session 56: The Stranglers – 'Black and White'
Could it be the first post-punk album? Certainly Black and White is the sound of a successful punk band looking beyond the boundaries of their genre. Moving into more experimental territories, both sonically and lyrically, introducing challenging time signatures and diverse subjects for lyrics.
As their third album in just over 12 months, Black and White is the result of a band who always strived to test the limits of what they can get away with.
As usual we’ll follow the album with our usual 7″ session. Bring along a single of your choice to spin after the main session. This can be anything you like, for any reason – the more out there the better.
It’s about meeting fellow music lovers, talking about the great records of the past and predicting upcoming future classics.
The bar’s open throughout and we’re selling Veggie Chilli for just £3 a bowl.
Doors open 12pm, session starts at 12.30pm.
