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.

Concert Hall Perth 3rd March 2016

Black & White in Perth
3rd March 2016

As promised, here is the first recording that I have from the recently completed and hugely successful Black & White tour. As is often the case with opening night's there were a few teething problems that had to be resolved, most notably Dave's keyboards that weren't playing ball on this evening. Replacements were rushed in from base. As a punter, I thought that the band were being a little harsh on themselves and the problems weren't so bad. Many thanks to Chatts99 and to MeAnIe, a great collaborative effort folks!
