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

Poseurs On Parade - The Clash Stage Gear Exhibition

Mick Jones: 'It was Bernie's idea'
I spotted this in the Evening Standard a couple of weeks back. Soho will statge a pop-up exhibition of Clash memorabilia and stage clothing to coincide with the release of their remastered box set 'Sound System'. A question arose on the Burning Up Time forum whether something similar could be done for the Stranglers.
I think not, if any of their stage clothes survived (which is doubtful), they should probably be burned in the interest of public health and hygene!

Dave Greenfield: 'Mmm, I wonder what time Oxfam opens?'
