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

Jet Black Interview 1987

Ok, here's another of Eric's remasters. This time a copy of a flexi disc featuring an interview with Jet Black from 1987. Can't remember for certain, but the sleeve notes would indicate that this was a freebie with Top Secret fanzine (which can also be found on this site).




  1. Thanks a lot for another remaster.

  2. It's great that you could propose my remasters for fans-in-black. You welcome. Cheers. All my best. Eric

    1. If you need help, don't hesitate. Cheers. Eric

  3. Hi Eric, cheers! They are so good they deserve a permanent home. I tried to contact you just to ask again, but couldn't find a contact. I'm happy that you are OK with them being here.
