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 '82 (5) The Cure Hugenottenhalle Neu Isenburg 21st May 1982

Here is an excellent soundboard recording of The Cure in Germany in May 1982, on the European leg of the 'Pornography' tour. I appreciate their importance, but if I am honest they do not shake my foundations, although some of their singles are brilliant. I took my daughter Mo to see them in Munich a few years ago. She loved it.....
