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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ruts DC - Rhythm Collision Volume 2 The Wait Is Almost Over
With a gestation period worthy of a herd of elephants, I am pleased to say that the wait is almost over. Next month sees the full release of Ruts DC's 'Rhythm Collision Volume 2' and on the basis of the sampler and the additional material I have heard live, I am willing to stick my neck out and predict that this will be one of, if not the album of 2013 in the Andrews' household.
The flyer above is for the launch party.
.... with luck the party will reach London sometime soon (ish).
