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

Flux Of Pink Indians The Action Space Theatre London 19th September 1980

A bit of self indulgence on this one I'm afraid. Scouring through some old music press yesterday I came across this ad. Flux of Pink Indians having recently evolved from The Epileptics were playing just down the road from my house. This band were the only musical claim for the town (discounting Shakatak of course).

Here's another early set recorded a month or so later than the Stortford date.

  1. If it's self-indulgence, then I must also plead guitly - grand to hear the Epileptics/Flux again, so ta muchly! For those who'd like more, check out these post at the Crassers' blog killyourpetpuppy:, a recording kindly provided by our own Adrian of this site.

    Ta muchly to all, cheers Dave Sez.
