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

NEW LINK - Bingley Hall Stafford 30th May 1978

 A repost here for Duncan Round. His 4th Stranglers gig.

Incidentally me and 'poster boy' Owen Carne were having a discussion recently along the lines of the fact that whoever it was that provided the artwork in the days when Harvey Goldsmith was responsible for the band's live promotion should have had his or her knuckles rapped! The 'Dateline' logo was well established for some times by Black & White and what was appearing on gig posters was almost a child's interpretation of the proper version.

Only one worse example exists!
