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

Roskilde Festival, Denmark 4th July 1987

Flyer for the festival
(The Stranglers do not feature)

Baz Warne has enlightened us with a pretty detailed tour diary of the band's extensive festival schedule this year (here) and it seems that such dates may become a regular feature for the Stranglers in the next couple of years. But if anything, the festival circuit is more of a rediscovery for the band as they have always been there.

Here's an example from the well established Roskilde Festival in Denmark. I have included two sources here, the first of the full 21 song set and the second from an edited radio broadcast (actually the first 11 songs of the set). Both sets are included in each download folder.

2. Was It You?
3. Down In The Sewer
4. Nice In Nice
5. Punch And Judy
6. Souls
7. Always The Sun

11. Who Wants The World
