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

10 From '87 (4) The Ramones Sheffield University 15th November 1987


This was a BBC 'In Concert' broadcast of a partial set that the band played at Sheffield University at the tail end of the year. The tour was promoting the 'Halfway to Sanity' album that came out in September. Later Ramones albums suffered much criticism in the music press, but that album I think is pretty strong and 'Bop 'Til You Drop', 'Weasel Face' and 'The Garden Of Serenity' from the album appear on this recording.
