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

Magazine The Academy Glasgow 16th February 2009


Another night on the brief Magazine comeback tour. On this night in 2009 they were on stage in Glasgow. I saw them in London on the tour.... I loved them, Gunta hated them. I was amused that for this night only, the leather jackets that I was used to at gigs were replaced by trench coats.... we had crossed over into post punk's manor!

I loved them for the fact that they used Dave Formula's keyboards to create massive sounds that melded punk and prog. Gunta hated the idea of Howard playing chess against himself on stage.... she had a point!

But in the unlikely event that you find yourself on this page and are unfamiliar with the music of Magazine, give 'Real Life' a spin in old money or at least a stream (in the new!). You will not be disappointed I promise you.

  1. I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ose  who helped me in my life, i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by dr Ose spiritual, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how dr Ose spiritual cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that their is no cure for herpes that is Not true just contact him and get cure from dr Ose spirirtual healing spell cure of all kinds of sickness you may have. penis enlargement
