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.

Hugh Cornwell and Robert Williams Nosferatu Outtakes
Probably as a result of the seat of the pants recording methods used and limited studio opportunities that existed throughout the Nosferatu recording process, there was not much left on the cutting room floor when all was done. The only other complete track to emerge from these sessions was called 'Grinding The Gears' which found its way onto Robert's solo album 'Late One Night'.
Here's what appears to have been left....
01. White Room
02. Big Bug
03. Irate Caterpillar
