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.

Zion Train & Ruts DC John Peel Session 5th March 1996

This one was a new one on me. A mid-90's Peel session no less from Zion Train backed by Segs, Paul Fox and Ruffy from Ruts DC. Bear in mind that this is 15 years before Ruts DC would tentatively tread the boards again, this tine with Molara, formerly of said Zion Train on vocal duties.

The second surprise for me with this is the cover of The Mob's 'Waiting For The Witch Hunt'. A brilliant song by anybody's reckoning methinks.
