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 adrianandrews1@sky.com.

Contact From The Aural Sculptor - John King


Last week I received an email from one John King who most of you will know as the artist responsible for the creation of the rather large ear that graced the front cover of the 'Aural Sculpture' album. Some of his work was also featured in the 'Catalogue' of that 1985 tour. Sadly, as reported on these pages, the full scale sculpture, neglected and exposed to the elements in a Kingston garden, crumbled in the late 1980's.



John does however have some related original artwork drafts related to the album and he contacted me to see whether any visitor to this site would be interested in a purchase. If you are, please drop me an email (email address can be found on the site header) and I will put you and John in contact.
