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.

What Would You Be Doing For the Next Two Weeks back in '79!


It may seem thoughtless and perhaps bordering on the cruel, but hey, I am in the very same boat as everyone else. As we endure untold months deprived of the live music will you just take a peak at this two week period covering 7th to 14th October 1979 from the always rather light weight Smash Hits.

Just think, all you would need would be time off , a young person's railcard and either loaded parents or the best paid paper round in the land!
