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 email@example.com.

Do They Owe Us A Living?..... Course They Don't!
I was sitting in front of the TV a week or so ago having my tea and watching the local news (BBC Look East - where nothing ever happens!) and my attention was immediately caught, when on cutting back to the studio after one news item, the screen was filled with the Crass logo!!
What followed was a brief piece on Steve Ignorant, now a lifeboat man operating out of Sea Palling on the wonderful North Norfolk coast.
