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

Mallory Park 18th September 2010

Here's a slightly shortened festival set coming off the back of the Decades Apart tour. The Stranglers teamed up with Triumph for this celebration of our bass player's favourite mode and make of transport. Full sets  from the Spring tour will be uploaded before too long, but even here it is notable that this tour saw a much needed rethink of the band's set. On this recording, Go Buddy Go, Curfew, Genetix and Down in the Sewer make a welcome return, whilst a new song in the shape of Retro Rockets appeared.
