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.

Wilko Johnson Interview on 'Front Row' BBC Radio 4 25th January 2013

Wilko Johnson and John Wilson
January 2013

Here's a great little interview broadcast yesterday on BBC Radio 4's arts programme 'Front Row'. In it, Wilko talks of how the simplicity of the Dr Feelgood sound was achieved and of course his recent diagnosis of terminal pancreatic cancer. Very poignant stuff indeed!
