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.

Comments and Reflections on the 'Dandy In The Underworld' Tour March 1977

Thanks are due to my daughter Mo who drew my attention to this YouTube clip that captures Marc Bolan talking about The Damned, the tour and that new punk thing that was going on.

For the view from the other side of the fence take a look at the meticulous 'Dandy in the Underworld' website that dedicates a page to The Damned and features interviews with Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible and Brian James on their recollections of touring with the the Bopping Imp.
