Malcolm Middleton (Arab Strap) plus Support on Saturday 20th April 2019
Please note, this event has been cancelled.
Malcolm Middleton is back, again, with his seven-hundredth studio album BANANAS, this time on the much beloved TRIASSIC TUSK RECORDS. The guitarist and songwriter is best known for his work with Aidan Moffat in Scottish rock legends ARAB STRAP, as well as for his string of DPR$$N-CORE smash hit singles “Fuck It, I Love You”, “We’re All Going To Die” and “Balled Of Fuck All”.
On BANANAS Malcolm has teamed up with the acclaimed not-jazz trio JEANSY, JONES & SMILLIE (David Jeans DRUMS, Stevie Jones DOUBLE BASS and Graeme Smillie PIANO) to produce an album that is both scathing and nice. With new songs like “BUZZ LIGHTYEAR HELMET”, “LOVE IS A MOMENTARY LAPSE IN SELF-LOATHING” and “PISS OFF LIFE, JUST KILL ME NOW” (that last one is a joke), Malcolm continues to report back from the depths of the everyday whilst attempting to monetise HELL. Adding a dose of saccharine to the mix, the Samaratinesque choir of Kenny Anderson (KING CREOSOTE), Jenny Reeve (BDY_PRTS) and Dan Wilson (WITHERED HAND) courageously manage to pull Malcolm back from the brink of many a teetering jont just as he’s about to disappear up his own proverbial.
