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.

  1. many thanks for this one, looking forward to re-living that night all over again. band was on top form from what i can remember but that could be an alcohol haze. the support band, Starbase 109 were fantastic in a bonkers sort of way, the last time that the Stranglers really had an out-of-step band as a support act, a shame, always liked the more exotic support bands. would you happen to have the 2006 gig from the same venue?
