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.

Cabot Hall Canary Wharf London 3rd October 2003


Many thanks to Yesican for coming up with the goods and replacing my knackered copy of this strange gig. As I have mentioned previously, I was working within a stone's throw of Canary Wharf at the time. I even picked up flyers for the gig but couldn't bring myself to go. The return to form 'Norfolk Coast' was still a little bit beyond the horizon so my interest remained low.

Nevertheless, this is a great recording and who can poo-poo the inclusion of 'Don't Bring Harry'!
