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.

Manic Street Preachers The Roundhouse London 17th December 2014

This one is brought to you courtesy of Chatts99 (cheers!). The band don't do it so much for me, but I know that there is a fair cross-over interest in the Manics. I have never seen them, the closest I came to doing so was when a mate's band supported them at the Bull & Gate pub in Kentish Town. That would have been around the time of the release of 'Motown Junk'. For some reason I didn't go which looking back is a shame!

Anyway two weeks ago their 'Holy Bible' mini-tour concluded in London town and Chatts captured it well.
