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

Sure Makes You Think......

I took a moment this morning to have a look at some stats on this blog a month in.

11,000 + visitors
24 comments (of which 7 are mine or from my son!)

This is not a moan as such, just a request to get a bit more engaged.

Have a good weekend.

  2. Hi
    Thanks for the great site, keep up the good work.

  3. Said it before and I'll say it again, thanks Adrian for your dedication to the band, the fans and for sharing not only your collection but also your invaluable memories. I really miss going to gigs since I moved to Aus, so your memories have prompted my own, thanks for that, sometimes I don't feel quite so 'old'.
    Cheers mate, keep up the great work. Meanie.
