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.

Stiff Little Fingers Tor 3 Dusseldorf Germany 7th December 1987


On the subject of the 'Go For It Again' tour, here is a nice recording from Germany that preceded the UK dates by a week or so and here they sound more polished than they do on the Kilburn gig album.

  1. Love your SLF posts! Not found the time to read everything yet but listened to this 87 reformation gig and it's very good one with an excellent German audience! Keep'm coming.
