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

20 From '86 (4) The Icicle Works Royal Court Liverpool 1st October 1986

Now here were a great band (and one still playing). Liverpool's Icicle Works. This home town gig was recorded in late 1986 and as such features several songs from their excellent 'If You Want to Defeat Your Enemy Sing His Song' album that was released in March 1987. I saw them at The Reading Festival that August and they wee one of the best bands of the weekend..... miles better than Magnum and The Enid!
