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

Stiff Little Fingers In Bed With Medinner Session Broadcast 29th April 1994

Jake Burns & Bruce Foxton
Stiff Little Fingers
In Bed With Medinner
29th April 1994

Here's another session from the late night comedy and music show 'In Bed With Medinner'. This session featured the brilliant 'Harp', Jake Burns's furious riposte to racist attitudes encountered by the immigrant Irish population in the east coast cities if the U.S.

As an aside I recall Gunta pointing out that at this point Jake could have been a body double for Lovejoy's assistant Eric Catchpole!
