In another themed series of postings, I want to bring you good people some recordings of bands who have provided gig and/or tour support to The Stranglers over the last 41 years. Obviously, some of those bands are better represented on Planet Bootleg than others, but some I may well struggle with... The Tea Set for example.... and do any recordings of Nick Malham exist out there? It may be that I turn it on it's head and offer a band for whom the Stranglers were in support.
I'll see how I get on.
Where possible, I will try to make the recording as contemporary as possible to the support date.
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.
