Aural Sculptors - The Stranglers Live 1976 to the Present

Welcome to Aural Sculptors, a blog aimed at bringing the music of The Stranglers to as wide an audience as possible. Whilst all of the various members of the band that have passed through the ranks since 1974 are accomplished studio musicians, it is on stage where the band have for me had their biggest impact.

As a collector of their live recordings for many years I want to share some of the better quality material with other fans. By selecting the higher quality recordings I hope to present The Stranglers in the best possible light for the benefit of those less familiar with their material than the hardcore fan.

Needless to say, this site will steer well clear of any officially released material. As well as live gigs, I will post demos, radio interviews and anything else that I feel may be of interest.

In addition, occasionally I will post material by other bands, related or otherwise, that mean a lot to me.

Your comments and/or contributions are most welcome. Please email me at

The Damned Amnesty Festival of Youth Milton Keynes Bowl 19th June 1988

A brief, but not unrelated deviation. Here is the Damned set from the Sunday. Of note is the appearance of Joey Ramone for a version of Blitzkrieg Bop.

I remember being at the front for this one, in agony as a consequence of the sunburn I had got from being shirtless the day before (this was back in the day when I would take my shirt off in public!)

Many thanks to the original uploader for this one.
