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

Newcastle 02 Academy 14th March 2019

OK, first off I'd like to say a big thank you to  the taper for providing me with this recording to share on the Aural Sculptors site. Cheers. So here we have a solid 'Back on the Tracks' gig with three new songs in the set, if you still consider 'Water' to be new.

 I haven't been able to find good photos of the gig (only Drew's which is never a good starting point!) so there is no artwork associated with this recording at present.
