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.

20 From '79 (18) The Damned Bridgehouse Canning Town London 7th September 1979

OK, it's a fair cop, throw on the bracelets (as Rat once said), I'm cheating again, but this is relevant to what has gone before. Many thanks to Stevie D and Dave Sez.... here is a recording of the Damned at one of their two 'secret' gigs at The Bridgehouse Pub in East London's Canning Town. The quality isn't top notch, but in the historical context of the earlier post it needs to be here.
