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.Read more ›
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.......

One of the best albums you'll ever buy. Heard it first on BBC Scotland and decided to purchase - I wasn't disappointed. Aidan Moffat is a lyrical genius.Published on 18 April 2013 by Richard
