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.

Top Secret

Does anyone have a full set of this excellent fanzine that they would be able and willing to copy for me (with costs covered of course)? 'Top Secret' was a quality publication in the true spirit of punk cut and paste fanzines produced in the Littlehampton area in Sussex (Gary lived in Rustington if memory served me right). This was an essential pre-internet resource for Stranglers related news at a time when the production of 'Strangled' became rather unpredictable.

I have a few issues but not all.
