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

Hugh Cornwell Epic Studios Norwich 7th December 2014


The winter tour of 2014 saw Hugh and Hazel reunited. Here is Chatts record of an evening in Norwich. Cheers. This is the larger 24 bit version which will have to be converted if you intend to burn the recording to CD.




  1. Any idea if Hazel was recorded?? Hanx

    1. From the hugh.txt file within the download: "I did record Hazel O'Connors opening set but missed the first couple of minutes. I will post it eventually."
