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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Stranglers Sell Out!!....... The Roundhouse
I was surprised to learn earlier this week that the band's London date at Camden's Roundhouse has sold out many weeks in advance of the gig. I do not recall this happening in a long time. On the one hand, fair play I say. On the other hand though, I say 'Oh Bugger!' since I was caught on the hop and didn't get my act together in time. Therefore, should any kind reader happen to fall into possession of two spare standing tickets, please bear this faithful author in mind!
