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

Geordie Walker 1958 - 2023


More bad news pouring in on social media this evening. Geordie Walker, originator of the grinding guitar that made Killing Joke sound like a band without equal has died at the age of 64. 

This site, in its usual, rather insignificant way will mark this huge loss to the punk community in the coming days. 


  1. Terrible loss! A guitar sound like no other. Shocked. Krisinblack

  2. Jesus... Is there something in the water at the moment.. Dropping like flies
