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.

Stiff Little Fingers Rock City Nottingham 11th March 2024


On the night that I was supposed to be seeing The Stranglers in Belfast, Belfast came to Nottingham in the form of SLF. I missed them on this tour, but here's a nice sounding recording from their 'Hate Has No Home Here' tour. A good solid sing-a-long set from the band! Listening to this makes me think that I may well make the trip over to Belfast in August for the now annual 'Putting The Fast In Belfast' mini-festival.

Thanks to the original Dime uploader (Darkorb).
