And now for another support related post. 999's relationship with the band goes way back. In fact it could be said that Nick Cash's knowledge of the band goes back even further to a time when the boot was on the other foot and The Stranglers supported the band that Nick, then known as Keith Lucas, was in as Ian Dury's guitarist in the Kilburns.
999 provided tour support on the European leg of the Black & White tour in the summer of '78. 999 are captured with the band on the tour bus in the 'New Wave in Vienna' footage, which also features Nick larking about at the airport.

I have the full transcript somewhere which I will look to post in the not too distant future.
This particular recording was made 3 months after that tour.
