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

Capital Radio Session Autumn 1977

JJ Burnel 1977

Here's a nice early session that the band did around the release of the 'No More Heroes' album for London based Capital Radio.

1. Dagenham Dave
2. Goodbye Toulouse
3. Hanging Around
4. I Feel Like A Wog
5. No More Heroes


  1. Looking forward to getting this, only found a LQ source for it so far, so lossless (judging by your previous offerings) will be a dream! For your info and that of readers, the session was either recorded or broadcast on Capital on 6th June 1977.

    Cheers, Dave Sez.

  2. Ok will add a lossless link this weekend

  3. I have the recording and/or broadcast date as 26th June. This would tie in nicely with their appearance later that day at their second home in 1977, the Roundhouse. No time to relax when you're a Strangler in '77. Thanks for the session Adrian.
