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

Shepherds Bush Empire London 3rd June 1995

Here's a boot that has been requested (sorry I haven't your name) from the first part of the 'About Time' tour in the summer of '95. Notable is the inclusion of 'English Towns' considered by some to be a filler track on the 'No More Heroes' album, but thought of by others, myself included, to be a classic Stranglers track.

01. Intro (Waltzinblack)
02. (Get A) Grip (On Yourself)
03. Golden Boy
04. Bring On The Nubiles
05. Money
06. Nice 'N' Sleazy
07. Face
08. Golden Brown
09. Paradise Row
10. Laughing At The Rain
11. Straighten Out
12. Still Life

01. Lies & Deception
02. Goodbye Toulouse
