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.

26th October 1977 and The Stranglers Feel The Long Arm Of The Law In Brighton

JJ and Jet contemplate their day in court (not to be the last!)
Brighton October 1977

On The No More Heroes tour, a misunderstanding between the Sussex Constabulary and JJ, Jet and Finchley Dennis after the band's gig at the Top Rank Suite in Queen's Road, Brighton, resulted in an overnight sojourn in Brighton nick.

Here's the report as it appeared in The New Musical Express the following week (5th November 1977).
