Carnegie Hall fondly welcomes two past Scottish Album of the Year winners this autumn as Arab Strap founder Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert join forces to support their critically acclaimed collaborative LP, Here Lies The Body, which was recently released on Mogwai’s Rock Action label.
«The album title has a dual meaning – sex and death. It can be read as romantic surrender, but of course it’s also a phrase you’ll find on a tombstone,” says Moffat.
Fresh from her recent appearance at Tae Sup Wi' a Fifer, Siobhan Wilson (who guests throughout the album) along with former Arab Strap drummer David Jeans, will be joining the duo for their debut live appearance in Fife.
