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 adrianandrews1@sky.com.

Wonky V - The Soundtrack

The Stranglers at Effenaar, Eindhoven
20th November 2015

As indicated in Owen's Wonky wrap up email, both gigs that last month's Wonky away days bus trip took in were recorded for posterity.

As has been previously mentioned both gigs were great in every respect, venues, crowd, band and let's not forget organisation. Even better since both gigs this time around were in The Netherlands, the unfathomable token system for drinks wasn't in place so slow the British contingent down!


The band must surely have been knackered as they played these two gigs as the culmination of the European tour. But happily fatigue was held at bay and the band appeared to thoroughly enjoy these two gigs.

The punters seemed to enjoy it too!

Thanks to Chatts99 and MeAnIe for their work on these. Great effort folks!
