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

It's Lockdown Time Once Again


..... only this time it's cold and dark, Gin and Tonic in the garden has lost its appeal. There is nothing left to sort, tidy or clear in the house, Lockdown #1 saw to that. So what to do?

We are to isolated for 27 days which almost equates to the number of letters in the alphabet so each day I will post a recording of bands that progress through the alphabet.... I know, my imagination knows no bounds!


  1. Good luck and stay safe. Thats our gain then. We have just come out of 112 day lockdown

  2. Kinda same here and probably worse coming ... Stay safe and enjoy what can be !
