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

The Stranglers Shirt From The Mysterious East

On our recent foray north of the border, it came to our attention that there was something of a proliferation of the T-shirt pictured above. I'm sure that you would agree that it is a rather fetching piece of cloth inspired by the Raven era releases.

So my question is.... apart from being Scottish (sadly, I do not qualify here, despite my family name), how does one get one's grubby little hands on such an item?


  1. get your hands on one lemme know how and where it came from please.... I want!!!

    1. I want one too!!

  2. I have also seen people wearing the Bearlins
    Sweatshirt to no avail


  4. Got one, but it's top secret ;)

  5. I have one and have worn it abroad in Thailand and you'd be surprised how popular the stranglers are.

    p.s.The t-shirt ?
    They cam across the west sea....
