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

The Adverts The Greyhound Croydon 26th February 1978

Here then are The Adverts in early set performing  set that includes most of the 'Crossing the Red Sea' album. Not sure what occurs at the end of 'Bombsite Boy', whether there is a fight or whether TV Smith is chastising heavy handed bouncers. He is also less than impressed by the gobbing that the band are subjected to throughout the gig!
