Arab Strap - Paris 2006

Arab Strap, Live à la Maroquinerie, Paris France, 26th February 2006

Arab Strap were (unsurprisingly) a Scots indie group, well duo really but by this time had a fuller sound due to finding a great touring band, comprising the musical talents of Malcolm Middleton and the vocal talents of Aiden Moffat. This was the final night of their European tour, and their final year as a band too. Arab Strap were the dirtier, more grown-up, less camp relatives of their countrymen Belle and Sebastian, who recorded a song entitled The Boy with an Arab Strap, something that caused a rift between the two.

Both guys have had some success as solo artists, most notably Malcolm but also Aiden under the moniker Lucky Pierre. Anyway, enjoy!
