Arab Strap

Friday 19th January

The Lemon Tree

Everyone’s favourite Scottish rock duo (Aidan Moffat and Malcolm Middleton) tour their first new album in 16 years!

Arab Strap started out as an intimate project with home-recorded tapes shared between friends, but after the unexpected success of their inimitable debut single ‘The First Big Weekend’ they quickly found themselves, along with pals Mogwai, as some of the most exciting and cherished music coming out of Scotland. The band’s first gig was recorded live for John Peel, who became an early devotee. The band went from indie record label Chemikal Underground onto the major label Go! Beat and then back again to Chemikal, touring the world and funnelling life’s experiences into a unique concoction of music that explored beauty, sadness, intoxicants, sex, love, and death all rolled into one.

Big tunes like the First Big Weekend will be on offer as well as tracks from their new album. You can also catch Aidan on Iplayer at the moment and his documentary ‘Where You’re Meant to Be’ about rewriting traditional Scottish songs and touring them across the country. A really interesting watch that has shades of the cult classic Calum Kennedy documentary ‘Commando Course’ about touring Scottish entertainers going to wee schools, village halls and pubs in the Highlands and Islands. Charming and surprisingly funny! Worth checking out on Youtube.
