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 adrianandrews1@sky.com.

20 From '79 (2) The Stranglers Markthalle Hamburg 27th November 1979


Top dog, high quality bootleg, probably the best from 1979. The Raven flies over Germany! As the wind and rain lashes Britian on 27th November 2012 wouldn't you like to transport yourself back through 33 years to this night in Hamburg!

There is no more to be added to this one, other than ignore at your peril and enjoy!
