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.

Remembering Private Bertie Osborne 1st Dorsetshire Regiment Killed in Action 11th August 1918

To deviate from the music for a moment. I meant to post this on here last Wednesday at the same time that I posted it on a couple of Facebook pages, but overlooked to do so.

The story concerns the death of a soldier of The Great War. He lived his adult life before sailing for France not a two minute walk from my front door. If the urge takes you please take a look on one of my other sites.

Detail from the main War Memorial
in Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire.
