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.

Manic Street Preachers Simon Mayo's Drivetime BBC Radio 2 15th September 2010

I know that there is quite a considerable cross over interest in the Manics among The Stranglers fan-base, so here is a short two song radio session from a few years back recorded in the month of the release of their ' Postcards From a Young Man' album.


01. Simon Mayo Interview Part 1
02. (It's Not War) Just The End Of Love
03. Simon Mayo Interview Part 2
04. All Or Nothing (Small Faces Cover)
05. Simon Mayo Interview Part 3

With a cover of 'All Or Nothing' it's also a fitting tribute to the recently departed Mac!

With thanks to the original Dime uploader.
