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.

Kick Out! The Newtown Neurotics Story

Ticket booked! A culmination of 35 years of listening to this great band...... it's just sad to see that the inequalities of the mid-80's were never resolved...... if anything the gulf is wider than before.

This band, the Miners Strike and Spitting Image, in that order, served as my early political education.

We have a momentous political event on the immediate horizon. I don't care which way you vote (he bravely lied :)).... just don't waste the opportunity!
