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 email@example.com.

NEW LINK - Liverpool University 14th October 1977
Here's a renewed link at the request of Paul who emailed me about the defunct rapidshare link with the following comment
'The Stranglers - Liverpool University 1977 - This gig is where me and my mates were thrown out of the soundcheck because we had bunked in. I then went into Liverpool City Centre and met the girl I married (and am still married to).....'
Paul, a very happy ending and all that but I hope that you at least managed to see some of the soundcheck!
