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.

20 From '80 (12) The Cure Grand Studio RTL Session French Radio 9th June 1980

Not so fat Bob
The Cure in 1980

Here's a short one that has been doing the rounds on-line for some time. I am not the biggest fan of this band, I have some of their stuff but not a great deal. Nevertheless, you have to admire their longevity and everlasting popularity. In recent years they have also put on some truely marathon shows covering their whole back catalogue... one of the greatest things that long lasting bands can do for their fanbase I think.
