I have long suspected that Aidan Moffat was probably not
a very happy man and there is little in his collaboration
with fellow Scottish multi-instrumentalist Bill Wells to
discount this hypothesis. It matters not a jot. This album
delivers one of the most sublime slices of trancendent misery
I have ever encountered. Drama, pathos, love and loss and a
thousand grubby details of a life lived-hard with a jaundiced
eye and the nerve to look death in the face and stare it down!

The rough and rasping delivery of the truly chilling but darkly
humourous 'Cages' put me in mind of another of Mr Moffat's
countrymen, the psychiatrist/guru R.D. Laing, who's extraordinary
(hear it if you can get hold of if - I'll lend you my vinyl
copy if you're very good!) 1978 album 'Life Before Death', scrapes
and skids around in a similar dark pool of human emotional detritus.
There are no un-stained souls in Mr Moffat's universe!

'The Sadness In Your Life Will Surely Fade' is a hugely poignant
composition which offers no real hope that it will but perhaps
that's the point : if life isn't really going to get much better
perhaps we should make the most of it just as it is but ensuring
that we notice the small details on the way. Dissolution, despair
and decay have rarely been so knowingly served! A morbid masterpiece.

There is, however, tenderness too. 'Let's Stop Here' is a song
so raw and beautiful it almost hurts to listen to it. The spare but
luminous arrangement frames one of Mr Moffat's finest compositions
and vocal performances. When the abrupt ending comes the last breath we
took is left hanging in the air like a half-remembered dream.

I was introduced to this by a friend and it's truly fabulous. If you buy nothing else this year then download this, you will not be disappointed. Mix of jazz, folk, punk and spoken word, you gotta hear it to know what I mean. The best new album I have bought in years.

I personally don't ever want to listen to the track "glasgow Jubilee" ever again. I know that Aidan is recreating a classic lyric form but just too coarse and vulgar for me to appreciate. Almost all of the rest, though, is sublime. Not necessarily nice, 'Dinner time' is just scary, but in its own way, perfect. Everything on the album [but GJ] is a perfect blend of lyric, sometimes spoken, sometimes 'sung', and music. Listen to this twice and it is there in your consciousness. Others have reflected on just how good 'Copper Roof' is. I would just draw attention to one verse of 'The Greatest Story...' :

somewhere unseen and deep inside
the lucky sperm and egg collide
the zygote's little cells divide
the morula goes for a ride
this tiny tryst makes blastocyst
and soon the mind and heart exist
and soon you arrive

THere aren't many things better than hearing Aidan welcoming the birth of a child in his unique style, augmented by Bill Wells beautiful music.

Do give it a listen.......
