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

Dave Greenfield Entertains Brighton

Being from a place called Burgess Hill I am well acquainted with Brighton (my Dad being a Brightonian as well helps). 10 miles separates the towns. First gigs were at Brighton venues too. I also love local history as it relates to the towns and cities that I have lived in and this is one of of the positive sides of social media, in that it offers a fantastic platform memories of former times. One chap on a Brighton past site focuses on the town's rich musical history of which our Dave was a prominent figure long before that 'tasche was even a remote possibility.

It is entirely possible that my Dad or members of his large family, all resident in Brighton throughout the 1960's, could well have engaged with a member of the opposite sex on the dancefloor to Dave's lilting keyboard melodies. Now there's a thought!
