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

20 From '77(17) The Damned Birmingham Odeon 17th March 1977

Hey, whilst it was not my intention to post the gigs from The Damned in this 1977 thread, two gigs from the T. Rex 'Dandy In The Underworld' tour found their way into by inbox (many thanks to the sharer!) and it was fitting to share for the penultimate post on what was a pivotal tour for not only The Damned but for the UK punk scene as a whole.... sadly Marc was not to see the full benefit of the pairing as he was lost to us in the September of the same year. So what the hell.... The Damned!.... again!

  1. Interesting poster as I went to the gig and it wasn't billed as T Rex in my memory but just Marc Bolan
