Stranglers - Photoscapes

intro

Denzil Watson photographs the Stranglers at a show at the Sheffield Academy on their latest tour in which they performed their seminal 'Black and White' album in its entirety


The Stranglers have just concluded a tour in which they played live in its entirety their 1978 ground-breaking album, 'Black and White', along with a selection of other favourites from their extensive catalogue. One of the most influential albums of the late 1970s, 'Black and White', which was the Stranglers' third album, reached number two in the UK album charts and had a seminal effect on many of the bands in the then fledgling post-punk movement. Its track list includes 'Tank', 'Toiler on the Sea,' 'Nice n Sleazy' and their cover of the Bacharach and David classic Walk On By, which in 2014 was voted number 3 in the BBC Music Top 50 greatest cover versions. These photographs of the Stranglers were taken at a gig on the tour on March 17th at the Sheffield Academy.
