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 adrianandrews1@sky.com.

The Grand Studio RTL 21 Feb 2012 Audio and Video

 



Back in 2012, the band went to quite a lot of trouble to promote the then new album 'Giants' on the Continent. This is one of a handful of promotional visits that The Stranglers (as here) or JJ and Baz paid to various radio stations in France and Belgium to plug the album.

Here for the first time is a set that I put together of the band's gig at The Grand Studio RTL station in France. Part of the set was also streamed.
