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

Canterbury Odeon 25th September 1977 Upgrade - ARTWORK CORRECTED


Ah Damn! Just missed this ones birthday, but never mind. Here is an upgrade to the FLAC version that has previously been posted on this site in that this version completes the set with 'London Lady',  'No More Heroes' and a brilliant 'Down in the Sewer'. This gig was only the third date on the 'No More Heroes' tour from way back when bands used to play places like Canterbury!

Many thanks Dom P!
