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

20 From '79 (7) The Clash Notre Dame Hall London 5th July 1979

Here's a recording with a long web history, but as always, many downloads will have gone to the wall with megaupload, so another cannot hurt.

The Clash outside Notre Dame Hall
Leicester Square, London 1979

This was a very low key gig played at a small venue in central London to showcase the 'London Calling' album (to some The Clash's finest moment.... I still hand it to the first album every time). Apparently, this gig is notable as it was the only occasion when 'I'm Not Down' and 'Hateful' got a live airing.
