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.

Ruts DC Interviewed on Liz Kershaw's BBC Radio 6 Music Show 3rd September 2016

Admittedly a tad tardy with the posting of this one for people's attention, but here's a great little interview with Segs and Ruffy. Here, they talk about the origins of The Ruts, Malcolm and Foxy (of course), their longevity in this ruthless industry and more importantly of the imminence of the much anticipated new album 'Music Must Destroy' which will be launched at next Friday's gig at the Underworld in Camden Town and finally of a major UK tour scheduled for March of next year.

Happy days!

Little would I have thought back in 2011, when Ruts DC started out again with some short support sets for Alabama 3, that five years later they would two studio albums, a live album, a handful of singles and a brilliant biography under their belts. Not to mention gigs, gigs, gigs all over the place.

Quality endures. Here's to the next five years!
