Post-strap report


Well Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton's previous guise Arab Strap may have called it a day as Duo last year, but both seem to be prolific as ever with individual musical projects.
Malcolm's supporting Badly drawn boy tonight in the Mandela Hall Belfast in anticipation of His new album A Brighter Beat on his new label Full Time Hobby due Feburary 26th.
Aidan on the other hand sees the release of his third album under the guise of L.Pierre (formally Lucky) today on the excellent Melodic Label.
Also due this year from Aidan is a spoken word album called I can hear your heart on Chemical underground
Moffat also has a new band in the works called Aidan Moffat and the best of's with an album due next year.
Both Aidan and Malcolm contribute to Ballads of the Book, a collabrative album of various contemporary scottish musicians including
Aerogramme, James Yorkston, Sons And Daughters, King Creosote and the rather good De rosa. Its a bit like that reindeer section album except instead of being curated by that cunt Gary Lightbody, its that Fuzzy haired cunt from Idlewild.
Have a listen:

Malcolm Middleton-Four Cigarettes from A Brighter Beat
L.Pierre-Hike from Dip
Aidan Moffat and the Best Of's-The Sixth Stone from Ballads of the book
Aidan John Moffat-The Boy You Love from I can hear your heart
