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 adrianandrews1@sky.com.

Kraftwerk Paradiso Amsterdam 17th January 2015

 


Next up was 'radioactivity' release in late 1975 an album which offered up a colder, starker aspect of Kraftwerk's sound. The title itself is something of a play on works as the album mixes the themes of the nuclear chemisty meaning of radioactivity with its Geiger counter intro, references to Madame Curie and uranium with references to radio transmission, Radiowaves, Antenna and News. I know crazy Germans. But crikey, is it out there for 1975!

14 years later a revamped version of the title track appeared in their 'The Mix' album which was less stark than the original but enhanced by references to nuclear facilities with dubious safety records in the past (Sellafield) to those with full on meltdown histories (Harrisburg and Chernobyl). Those clean living alpine cycling chaps took up against nuclear in a bit way playing several Anti-Nuclear events.

With this album, Kraftwerk were on the cusp of creating some really extraordinary, truly innovative music.
