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

Lost Recordings - The Stranglers 1977 to 1990

First of all I'd like to say a big thank you to those of you who have so kindly offered to assist with replacements for data lost in my recent PC meltdown. I now have a new computer and have spent the last few evenings figuring out what has been lost. I have only covered the Hugh period so far, but its a good start.

If anyone can help out with lossless versions of the following I would be very grateful.

Email address for transfers is:
