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

Toilers In The Sea Looe Music Festival 23rd September 2012

And The Band Played On - Baz Faces The Storm
Looe Music Festival
23rd September 2012

The festival at the last chance saloon. I didn't make his one, but by all accounts it was a wash out, so all credit to those who did make the journey to deepest darkest corner of south west England to the last festival that The Stranglers played that year.

Thanks to MeAnIe for some great artwork!
