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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Roundhouse London 26th June 1977
I thought that I had nearly everything that there is to have on the live front until I received this in a recent trade. Not sure when it appeared in circulation, but it's a real treat..... a high quality recording of one of their many appearances at the famous Roundhouse in London's Camden Town. I have no idea whether this is the early or late set.
I am sharing this in 256 kbps format in which it was received.
I hope that you enjoy this as much as I do.
