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

UK Subs Resolution Festival 100 Club London 12th January 2023 - The Gig


So then, here is the gig. The inimitable UK Subs in the hallowed 100 Club. Charlie says he loves the venue because there are no barriers. And really it is funny how we have come to accept the stage barrier as the norm these days in so many venues... that strange narrow no-man's land occupied by crouching figures with outsized camera lenses and scowling muscle men patrolling with menace (although in fairness most are OK these days!). I'm with Charlie!
