Black and White is the third studio album by English new wave band The Stranglers. It was released on 12 May 1978, through record label United Artists. As with The Stranglers' first two albums, Black and White was produced by Martin Rushent. The album sees The Stranglers adopting a more experimental approach to song structures and time signatures (for example, "Curfew" features 7/4 time).

These were black and white times. There was no space for being in the middle. Everything was polarised. The cover of the album summed it up, the band scowling- they never looked cooler, more menacing. Flip the album over and things got a whole lot darker- at least a year ahead of Joy Division and the new dark the Stranglers were wandering into some very black territory here. Side opener œCurfew’ was a manic and compulsively ugly look at an apocalyptic future with music to match, œThreatened;’ just stank with a weird paranoia and an obtuse lyric and delivery from JJ, In the Shadows’ was a hint at JJ’s soon to come solo album that was getting recorded at the same time (the solo album, by the way, is genius

Of the first three Stranglers albums, Black & White is arguably the weakest, yet it still has some absolutely stunning moments. For example, the epic "Toiler on the Sea" picks up where "Down in the Sewer" and "School Mam" left off on the band's two previous efforts

After Black and White, The Stranglers would leave their punk and their pub-rock roots behind forever, embracing the keyboard-led pop of the 1980s with aplomb (but not before recording their iciest album, the confidently fantastic The Raven).

Black and White is The Stranglers third studio album and was recorded within 18 months of their debut Rattus Norvegicus. Produced by Martin Rushent and engineered by Alan Winstanley, the album is divided into the Black side and White side, each nominally characterised by the style and mood of the songs which they contain. This release sees The Stranglers adopting a more experimental approach to song structures and time signatures (for example, "Curfew" features 7/4 time).

36 years ago today, the Stranglers released their third album, Black and White, an effort which remains tied with its predecessor, No More Heroes, 1977’s as the highest-charting of their career, making it to on the UK charts. Apparently not wanting to mess with a good thing, Black and White was – like the two albums that came before it – produced by Martin Rushent, and it provided the Stranglers with another top-20 single in Nice ‘n’ Sleazy.
