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.

And The Winner Is....

Congratulations to Meanie who came up with the winning entry to the caption competition, as judged by this democratic panel of one.

It's a shame that the bugger is in Australia...... it couldn't cost more! Only joking my friend!

Hugh: 'Quick... what's 128 divided by 3?'
JJ: 'Let me pause for reflection for a second...... ah, Fuck knows!'
Also worthy of mention in dispatches:
'Keep smiling! The press are here.'
Hugh: 'Demon of the semen. So what does that make me then?'
JJ: 'Umm...... Ugly?'
Please drop me a line Meanie with your choices.
