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 email@example.com.

In a quiet moment, just checking up on some stats I looked at the downloads generated for certain posts.
The recent JJ and Jet interview from BBC Radio 6 has been downloaded 779 times and generated....... 0 comments.
This particular interview was posted for the benefit of those that missed it in the UK and those outside of the UK that either were unaware of the broadcast or could not access it online.
I have stated before that I do not want to moan, but for so many people to actively download something without a single acknowledgement is rather trying!
I know those that are appreciative and supportive of the site and it's much appreciated. This message goes out to those who download everything and contribute nothing. I think that you know who you are. Please don't be selfish.
