12 May 1978 Stranglers release Black & White album

Music Review: The Stranglers - Black and White (1978)
"Hugh Cornwell’s lyrics, at least during the first five years of the Stranglers have always been one of the most, if not the most important facet of their work"

Stranglers Black And White
"The lyrics are decidedly strange though, tales of sailing a ship through harsh seas work well with the unpredictable nature of the track."

Black And White
"More than any song present on the 'actual' album, The Stranglers cover of 'Walk On By' firmly indicated that they had enough about them to survive the punk fall-out stylistically."

Stranglers blast America with New Wave rock, art, and politics
The Michigan Daily
"Burnel later admitted that though the band is generally contemptuous of the American New Wave as they are of the rest of America, they admire Television."
